I love tacos and so does my son. It’s one of the only ways I can get him to eat dinner with no complaints, I usually just have to hand him some chicken, homemade tortillas, and lime and he’s a happy six-year-old.
Breakfast isn’t as easy, so as I was thinking of egg recipes for this post it hit me – breakfast tacos.
I live in British Columbia, this province has incredible resources for tasty and nutritious foods. I’m incredibly lucky to live in a province that has incredible farmers for fruits, vegetables, chicken, and eggs.
Whenever I’m shopping at our local grocery stores, I always look for BC Eggs. Why?
Randa’s Tip: See the blue logo on the egg carton above that says BC Egg? That’s how you can find eggs from BC Egg at your local grocery store.
BC Egg Farmers care about their hens and ensure they’re well taken care of. I love the fact that the farms are family owned and many of the farmers raising the hens are a second and third generation in the family business.
Regardless of whether the farmer is a third generation farmer or a newbie to the game (like Rob, seen in the video above). Registered BC Eggs have high standards. They arrive in stores 4-7 days from the time the hens lay them all while being held to the highest standards of cleanliness, quality, and freshness!
The majority of the hens are housed for their safety due to predators and weather (we are still in Canada after all), but they’re anything but your typical chicken coop. In caged systems, they have a special system that separates waste from the hens themselves. In addition to this, the hens are carefully monitored by the farmers and because of this housing system, it reduces the need for veterinary care.
The health and safety of the hens and chicks are held to a high standard with BC Egg.
There are many kinds of eggs: free run, free range, organic, omega enhanced, white eggs, brown eggs, and processed liquid eggs (with or without yolks). The farmers are also happy to produce any type of eggs consumers want. For instance, farmers will switch to producing more cage-free, organic or omega eggs if consumers want them! All of which meet the highest BC standards.
Chorizo Egg Tacos
It’s hard to put into words how amazing my kitchen smelled while I was frying up the onions, bell peppers, and chorizo sausage. This partnership, combined with eggs – oh my gosh. Talk about breakfast heaven!
The best part is the dynamite taste that makes you believe it took time in the kitchen to create, whereas in reality, it was a few simple ingredients and fifteen minutes at the most!

Whether you buy tortillas or not, I wanted to share some of my favorite homemade tortilla recipes:
I personally used corn tortillas to make these gluten free breakfast tacos, but you can use whatever you like.
Note: I didn’t season with any salt and pepper as I found that the chorizo was already salted and packed enough flavour. However, feel free to season to taste.
