These Scrambled Egg Tacos are one of my go-to meals I’ll make when the fridge is empty, it’s late or I’m tired or just cooking for myself. More often than not, I cook them for dinner or as a late night snack, but of course they are perfect in the mornings too. This version is light and healthy, loaded up with greens and tomatoes and optional avocado slices. I leave out the cheese but add a dollop of sour cream to the scrambled eggs for a hint of richness. A quick, low-calorie meal that comes together quickly and easily. And to me they are like comfort food. Feel free to doctor them up any way you like adding ground meat, sausage or chorizo, cheese, or seasoned black beans. Or keep them simple and light like this, served with hot sauce.
