  • 4 small corn or flour tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • Crumbled feta cheese, chopped cilantro, sliced avocado (optional, for topping)

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion and bell pepper, and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the minced garlic, paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Pour in the diced tomatoes (with their juices) and season with salt and pepper. Allow the mixture to simmer for 10-15 minutes, until slightly thickened.
  4. Using a spoon, create four wells in the tomato mixture. Crack an egg into each well.
  5. Cover the skillet and let the eggs cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. While the eggs are cooking, warm the tortillas in a separate skillet or in the microwave.
  7. Once the eggs are cooked to your liking, remove the skillet from the heat.
  8. Carefully spoon the shakshuka mixture and eggs onto the warmed tortillas.
  9. Top with crumbled feta cheese, chopped cilantro, and sliced avocado, if desired.
  10. Serve your Shakshuka Breakfast Tacos hot, and enjoy the flavorful fusion of Middle Eastern and Mexican cuisines!
