Green Chiles and Ham Breakfast Tacos

Nothing opens our eyes in the morning like breakfast tacos, especially ones that hold something bold and spicy. Here, we combine sautéed poblano chile strips with ham under a fried egg, served in a warm corn tortilla. Up and at ’em!

This recipe was featured as part of our 7 Fried Egg Breakfast Tacos photo gallery.

Tips for Eggs, Ham, and Pork

Instructions

  1. 1Set a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat and add a little oil.
  2. 2Add the poblano strips and sauté until they soften, about 10 minutes.
  3. 3Add the ham and sauté with the chiles for 5 minutes; set aside.
  4. 4Grab a small nonstick skillet, add a bit more oil to the center, and break in 1 egg. Season with a little salt and fry until the white is set. Repeat with the remaining 5 eggs.
  5. 5Meanwhile, heat your tortillas (we do it directly over a gas flame till they’re puffed and a little blistered), and then evenly distribute the green chile–ham mixture among the tortillas.
  6. 6Top each taco with a fried egg and eat while hot!
