Breakfast Tacos with Ham, Green Chilies, Eggs and Cheese

Do you get excited for breakfast? I have to ask because sometimes I think I'm the only one in the world who doesn't. For the most part, I could take it or leave it - just give me some toast with coffee and we'll call it good. My family on the other hand? They love it all. To each their own, right?!

The only day I really make breakfast any more is on Sunday or if we have company. Otherwise, my family fends for themselves. Now that I think about it, maybe that's why they like it so much - it's not cereal, grits, oatmeal or smoothies! Ha! :)

I think y'all are more than aware by now that I just love Mexican food. Nine times out of ten, if given a choice of where to eat, I'm going to be looking for Mexican food! Living in Phoenix, there are tons of restaurants to choose from - I feel like I've hit the restaurante mexicano jackpot!

When I'm craving something South of the Border for breakfast, I often turn to tacos - because you can't get more Mexican than tacos! In this variation, I decided to use ham, eggs and green chilies. Tacos for breakfast? ¡No hay nada mejor que esto! - It doesn't get any better than this!
