I can never say that we eat on the go in the morning, as we work from home.  Regardless, there are days when I just seem to run out of time, and I need something to toss together quickly for breakfast.  These On the Go Breakfast Tacos are perfect for breakfast at the desk, or on the go.

Old El Paso Breakfast Tacos

This recipe happens to be another recipe that I developed for Old El Paso using their taco seasoning and the Stand ‘n Stuff Taco Shells.  These on the go tacos are loaded with protein as I used chorizo and eggs as the base of my recipe.  What makes them even more special is the creamy avocado cream that is drizzled over the top.  The avocado cream is made with fresh avocados, the taco seasoning and sour cream to make “creamy” goodness.  What I loved about the taco shells is that they are incredibly easy to stuff, as the bottoms are a little wider then a traditional taco shell, which stabilizes them for stuffing.  Just seems to make breakfast on the go, even more fun.
