4 tacos


  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • ½ small red or green pepper, diced

  • ½ jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • cup diced ham

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder

  • 4 large eggs

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 teaspoons butter

  • 4 small whole wheat or regular flour tortillas, warmed

  • ½ cup shredded Tex-Mex or Cheddar cheese

  • 2 green onions, chopped


  • ¼ cup salsa

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander


  1. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sauté red bell pepper, jalapeño pepper, and garlic until softened, about 2 minutes. Add ham and chili powder; sauté until heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove ham mixture to a bowl; cover to keep warm.

  2. Whisk eggs, salt, and pepper in a small bowl or measuring cup.

  3. Melt butter in the same skillet over medium heat; add eggs and cook, stirring gently, until set but still soft, about 2 minutes.

  4. Spoon eggs onto each tortilla. Top with ham mixture, cheese, and onion. Serve with salsa and coriander.


Substitute cooked black beans or your favorite beans for the ham to create a vegetarian version.
