Steak Egg & Cheese Tacos
These steak, egg and cheese tacos, makes my inner tacohead smile. I love a good taco and will travel great distances for a good taco joint. Since I had to keep Cinco de Mayo at home this year, I made my own tacos. The thing I love most about these steak, egg and cheese tacos are that they’re great anytime of the day, breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Enough writing. I hope you enjoy.
Steak Cooking tips:
Use your favorite steak for this recipe and cook it to your desired temperature. This recipe is for a medium done steak. This recipe calls for scramble eggs since it’s for a large crowd but you can make the eggs anyway you like. If you cannot find tajin seasoning chili powder is a great substitute. Use your favorite cheese as a substitute for the pepper jack.
Can you make ahead?
Fridge: You can make the salsa and steak in advance. Keep them in separate in an airtight container for up to 3 days max. Reheat the steak in a 350 degree oven for 5-8 minutes.
If you do not eat red meat just substitute your protein of choice.
