Leftover Inspiration

Breakfast tacos make me want a margarita

We had a bunch of leftover pico and chopped avocados from the night before and thought why not.

Scrambled Egg Tostadas

  • 4 eggs beaten with 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cayenne peppers chopped fine
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup pico de galo mixed with 1 chopped avocado
  • Tostada shells
  • Salt/pepper/tapito

Fry cayenne and garlic in oil for about 1 minute. Add eggs and scramble. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon eggs over tostada shells and top with pico mixture. Serve with hot sauce and margaritas.

    Yum – this is the best use of pico and avocados as far as I’m concerned. Having lived in Texas, I developed a (huge) taste for tex mex breakfasts. This looks soooo good —-

    Yes please! One of the best things about this — you don’t even need a plate! The tostado holds everything perfectly.
