First of all, let's talk about breakfast tacos. Breakfast tacos are the most amazing intersection of Texas, Mexico and Breakfast. In Austin and San Antonio, the taco creation scheme has become so legendary, even the New York Times wrote about it. Seriously. So here's how it's done. You need:
Tortillas (most are flour but the Canadian prefers corn)
Salsa (green, red or anything else)
and then the rest of it is customizable.
Typical ingredients are:
Cheese (usually Cheddar but I've seen American and Swiss also)
Potatoes (I have seen mashed, fried, and shoestring varieties in tacos)
Sausage or Chorizo (I've also seen picadillo)
Or really anything else you might want to put in there....
Then your ingredients are put in the hot tortilla and eaten dipped in salsa. Let me assure you, it's divine. Here are some photos evidencing the different kinds:
Now, the good news is, we can make them at home so when I'm in London and I have a craving, I can whip them up. The problem might come from the ingredients and having access to them. I will certainly be taking advantage of the Mexican food delivery websites (can be found on my expat links if you need it) As an aside, you might wonder what my favorite taco concoction is? Egg, bean, cheese, shoestring potatoes and avocado. Best. Ever.
Oh, I also thought, if you've stumbled across this and you're from the UK and are trying to guess how this breakfast taco concoction might taste? -- I would liken it in the tiniest sense to a Cornish breakfast pasty.
