Breakfast Tacos with Chipotle Sour Cream | A Nutritionist Eats

This recipe has been a long time in the making but it’s quite fitting that I’m sharing it today. Why? Because I’m on my way to Mexico and plan on eating many versions of mexican breakfasts for the next week or so. I had something similar – goat cheese breakfast tacos – at a restaurant (almost a year ago!) and while I loved the idea of the goat cheese tacos, they didn’t blow me away. I’ve been wanting to recreate them ever since.

So I finally got around to making them and it turns out that the chipotle sour cream totally stole the show. Dare I say…it left the goat cheese totally and utterly pointless. (Which in my world is a bit shocking given my intense love for cheese.)

I made the tacos again, this time omitting the goat cheese and they tasted just as good. No point in adding calories you can’t taste, am I right?

But back to the star. The chipotle sour cream is just…well, it left me wondering two things: why has this little can of chipotles been in my cupboard for almost two years and what else can I do with it?! (Brainstorms are in the works and chipotle chili is happening.) So all this is to say – you can’t (CAN. NOT.) leave the chipotle sour cream off. It takes a few short minutes and is so worth it.

The rest of the tacos? They are full of good stuff. I’m talking black beans, scrambled eggs, caramelized onions and fresh avocado slices. It’s pretty much the breakfast dreams are made of. And if you like eggs throughout the day, they would make a killer lunch or easy dinner.
