Ingredients

  • 10 - 12 4-inch corn tortillas
  • 6 fully cooked pork sausage links
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs (beaten)
  • 5 ounces queso fresco (Mexican fresh cheese)
  • Red taco sauce
  • Hot sauce (optional)

Instructions

  • Stack 6 tortillas on top each and wrap with of a paper towel. Add two drops of water on the paper towel. Repeat with the other 6 tortillas. Set aside.
  • In a medium pot over high heat, add sausage links. Cover with lid and cook until nicely browned on all sides. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Cut the sausage in half lengthwise.
  • Meanwhile, in medium non-stick skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon unsalted butter. Season the beaten eggs with salt. Once the butter is bubbling, add eggs. When the eggs start to set, run a spatula through the middle of the eggs to create soft curds. Repeat until the eggs are just cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
  • Heat each pack of tortillas in the microwave for about 35 seconds or until hot. Transfer the hot tortillas to a tortilla warmer or a plate with an aluminum-foil-cover.
  • It’s best to let everyone assemble their own tacos when serving. Place about 1 tablespoon scrambled egg on a tortilla. Add half of a sausage and 1½ teaspoons of queso fresco. Top with desired amount of taco sauce and/or hot sauce.

Notes

  1. My favorite corn tortilla brand is Guerrero. I used 4-inch ones, but you can use other sizes, but make sure they are corn tortilla. 
  2. The sausage links that I used is from Jimmy Dean
  3. Queso fresco (Mexican fresh cheese) can be found in regular grocery store along with shredded cheese. Once opened, keep it in an air-tight container for about 2 weeks in the fridge.
  4. There are two combos of hot sauce we like. One is with La Victoria red taco sauce and a few drops of Tapatio. They can both be found in supermarket. The other one is with Hot Ones hot sauce, Los Calientes. Buy this online on their website
