Spicy Breakfast Takis® Fuego® Tacos
- 1 lb bulk breakfast sausage
- 8 eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
- 2 tablespoons jalapeño or serrano chile, seeds and membranes removed, finely diced
- 1 package (4.7 oz) Old El Paso™ Takis® Fuego® Stand ‘n Stuff Taco Shells, heated as directed on package
- 1 cup Old El Paso™ Shredded 3 Pepper Cheese Blend (4 oz)
- 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 1/2 cup Old El Paso™ Crema Mexicana
- In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Transfer to medium bowl, and cover with foil to keep warm. Carefully wipe out skillet.
- Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat eggs and salt with fork or whisk until well mixed. Return skillet to medium-high heat; heat butter just until it begins to sizzle and look hot. Add onion and chile; cook 1 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened. Pour egg mixture into skillet; reduce heat to medium. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist and creamy.
- Spoon 1/4 cup sausage into each shell. Divide egg mixture evenly, about 1/3 cup each, over filling, then top with cheese, avocado and cilantro. Serve with crema.
