How many different ways can you have eggs?  And for how many different meals?  Are you a strictly breakfast only egg person?  Or are you ok with egg meals any meal of the day?  

For years I rebelled against eggs. We always had so many eggs in our house growing up and I think my flavor palate was swamped because of this.  Skip ahead 15 years or so and I have discovered the joy of eggs again in meals apart from just baked goods.  And now I have them on a regular basis – like my omelettes, quiches and just on top of sweet potato toast.  And I’m happy to have these meals any time of the day – not just for breakfast.  So here I present another form of eggs for you – a breakfast taco in jicama tortillas.

I’d never heard of jicama until we moved to the US … but then I saw them around all the Whole30 recipes and on Instagram, so when I found some jicama on special at the local grocery store, I knew I had to try it.  First I tried to make jicama chips … and failed miserably.  But then I thought I could make them into tortillas … and mix it with bacon, eggs, spinach and tomato (my BEST mixture) and make them into breakfast tacos.

And I gotta tell you, these were on repeat until I ran out of jicama – the tortillas are crunchy, not soggy, and it’s another veggie to add to your quota for the day.  Give this a go and let me know what you think!
