Breakfast Tacos

We love breakfast over here.  I usually make pancakes or waffles on Saturday mornings for the family and I don't eat them myself because of obvious calories in/calories out purposes.  Sometimes I  make something like this recipe that isn't necessarily low-cal, but seems like a better/healthier option for me than pancakes covered in butter and syrup.  This was a "throw it all together" morning and it worked great.  Everyone liked this.  Rob prefers flour tortillas so he made himself a giant taco in a burrito tortilla...I stuck to the corn and I really liked it! (Note--excuse the weird picture, we had gotten a new camera and had it on the wrong setting.)
Breakfast Tacos
1 tsp. oil
3 Tb. bell pepper, minced (any color would be great)
3 Tb. onion, minced (any color)
1/3 c. cooked potatoes, chopped (leftover oven fries or baked potatoes, or hash browns)
8 eggs, cracked and beaten
1/4 c. milk
salt, pepper and granulated garlic for seasoning
corn or flour tortillas, chopped tomatoes, chopped cilantro, chopped avocado, shredded cheddar cheese, hot sauce or taco sauce
Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat and saute peppers and onions for a minute or two, until soft.  Stir in potatoes and mix together.  Add the milk to the beaten eggs and pour egg mixture over the veggies.  Cook on medium-low, seasoning well with salt, pepper and granulated garlic, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula.  Serve on warm tortillas and top with cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, avocado and your favorite sauce.  Enjoy!
