Breakfast burritos are out and breakfast tacos are in! These are the perfect way to start the day; who could say no to breakfast with these on the table?
  • 2 Beretta striploin steaks
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 4-6 farm fresh eggs
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • Your favourite grill-able veggies, diced and sliced into LARGE pieces. (I like jalapeños, red bell pepper, red onions and cherry tomatoes)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Whole grain tortillas
  • Avocado (sliced)
  • Salsa of choice Shredded cheese (I prefer monetary jack for this dish)
  • Cilantro Salt & pepper for seasoning, if desired
  1. Clean and oil the grill. Preheat to 400F for direct heat cooking.

  2. Toss steak in spices. Depending on size grill for 4-6 minutes on one side then 6-8 on the other to achieve medium doneness.

  3. Set steak aside.

  4. Toss diced vegetables with olive oil, season with salt and pepper if desired.

  5. Place vegetables directly on grill and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until they are just tender.

  6. Remove from the grill and allow them to cool for about 5 minutes. Dice and slice into smaller bite sized pieces.

  7. While the vegetables are cooling it’s time to scramble your eggs. Whisk together eggs and milk. Poor mixture slowly into a preheated pan. Gently ‘pull’ eggs across the pan as they begin to cook. Do this until eggs are fully cooked (usually about 3 minutes).

  8. Grill your tortillas about 1-2 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear.

  9. Assemble tacos – spread a thin layer of salsa across the tortilla. Then pile your veggies, steak, scrambled eggs, avocado and cheese. Fold the other half over. Enjoy!
