Mexican Pork Sausage Breakfast Tacos

Who says Tacos are only a dinner food!? These Mexican Pork Sausage Breakfast Tacos will knock your socks off! They are packed with flavor and oh so good!Β 

Happy Fiesta Friday!

Is there a better holiday than Cinco de Mayo? Not in my book – chips, guac, tacos, margs – what’s not to love? And now that it is officially less than a month away it’s time to start planning your fiesta! Last year I devoted the whole week leading up to Cinco de Mayo to Mexican recipes. But I felt like it was too rushed and not enough time for you guys to get your menus ready, so this year I am spreading them out with Fiesta Fridays! Every Friday between now and Cinco de Mayo I will be sharing a new Mexican recipe with you! GET EXCITED!

First things first – Breakfast TACOS! These tacos are great for a weekend breakfast and if you are planning a Cinco de Mayo brunch they would be perfect! Cinco de Mayo falls on a Saturday this year so brunch might just have to happen!

These Mexican Pork Sausage Tacos are loaded. Start with a flour tortilla, smear with sour cream, layer on the browned pork sausage, corn cotija salsa, pineapple avocado salsa and topped off with a fried egg.

Let’s talk about fried eggs. It is my personal opinion that these tacos work best with a very runny egg. The egg yolk kind of serves as a sauce that you are pouring over the top of the taco. I understand not everyone likes runny eggs, so you do you, BUT I’m just saying if you make these with runny eggs you won’t be sorry! πŸ˜‰
