Our Son Made Us Breakfast Tacos

Homemade Breakfast Taco - Austin, Texas

Homemade Breakfast Taco – Austin, Texas

This may look like a simple breakfast taco, but it isn’t. A staple here in Central Texas, perfectly fine for breakfast or even later, it’s a symbol of growing independence and practical skills. My older, 21-year-old son made them for the whole family.

My son has been back from his Junior year ever since mid-March when the Coronavirus shut down the university. He’s been taking classes remotely like every other college student. In his Junior year, he was living with three other guys in a school-owned apartment, going to the supermarket, and cooking his own meals.

It’s gratifying that he’s picked up valuable life skills in addition to his traditional academic studies. It shows his growing independence. For the unfamiliar, breakfast tacos are very important in Austin. The one pictured has eggs, potatoes, cheese, salsa, and jalapeños, on a corn tortilla. There’s a near-infinite combination of possible toppings.

  1. You have that for breakfast?! Haha. I would’ve guessed Mexico if someone asked “where in the world do they have this for breakfast?”. It looks delicious but I’d only have that after 12PM. My breakfast, as for most people in Belgium, usually involves cerial or bread. It’s amazing how different this is all around the world. 🙂

    1. Yes, it’s very popular here in Austin. Of course, we are not too far from Mexico. In Texas we have our own version of Mexican food called TexMex.

      There are of course people here who eat cereal and bread too for breakfast.
