Huevos Fajita Taco

Breakfast or late-night snacking never tasted so good! Steak and eggs are cooked fajita-style (with bell peppers, onions and Pico de gallo), then dropped into a warm flour tortilla covered with a generous slathering of Merkts Sharp Cheddar.

  • Make it even easier by buying fajita-style beef that’s pre-cooked and sliced.
  • Strips of raw flank steak or tri-tip can also be economical cuts of beef.
  • Change it up by using shredded pork or use grilled or sausage or sauteed chicken strips.
  • Swap the soft tortilla out for a crunchy taco shell or go healthy with whole wheat tortillas.
  • Toss a little Merkts Sharp Cheddar Cheese into the pan with the steak, peppers and onions right at the end of cooking. It’ll add some extra creamy-cheesy indulgence.
  • Don’t just serve them up for breakfast—these are great any time of the day—even a midnight snack.
