Excerpt from Austin Breakfast Tacos: Reyna and maritza Vazquez, Veracruz All Natural
Why do you think Austinites love breakfast tacos so much?
Here in Austin, I think people like the breakfast taco because there are a lot of vegetarians and vegans. I think vegetarians don’t have many options in many places. I think the breakfast taco is one more option for vegetarians. What we sell the most is the migas taco, potato and cheese and the nopales and eggs. Eggs are more easily adapted to vegetarian meals.
Migas Taco Recipe
The migas tacos are very popular here at Veracruz All Natural. We make the tortillas (yes, they’re handmade) and tostadas fresh to order. Many people use chips from a bag, but we use our own fresh tortillas. To make the tostadas, we tear them into strips and lightly cook them in oil before adding them to the eggs.
We really like the taste of fresh ingredients, so we use really fresh pico de gallo, cilantro and onion. We don’t use jalapeños because some people may not eat spicy food. We add the eggs last, and it all cooks together. And it all goes on a fresh, warm tortilla.
