These delicious breakfast tacos are not just scrambled eggs and bacon served on a tortilla. They’re filled with all the good breakfast things: savory sausage, fluffy, cheesy scrambled eggs, crunchy hash browns and a wonderful tangy, creamy Avocado Chili Cream sauce. 

This is my recipe for 24 people, eating 2 tacos each (48 tacos total).  So if you’re feeding 100, make 4 batches of this recipe (hash browns, sausage, eggs and sauce.) The great news is, unlike breakfast burritos, you don’t have to stuff  these.  

Go for it.  

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 24 people
  • 48 flour or corn tortillas
For the Avocado Chili Cream Sauce
  • 4 large avocados pitted and peeled (12 1/2 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons canned mild green chiles diced
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (2 ounces)
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise (1 ½ ounces)
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
For the Cheesy Scrambled Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 dozen eggs
  • 1 cup evaporated milk (WAY better than whole)
  • 2 teaspoons Lawry's seasoned salt
  • 8 ounces shredded mild cheddar cheese
For the Hash Browns
  • 1 (30 – 32 ounce bag) hash browns
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
For the sausage
  • 2 pounds breakfast sausage I use Jimmy Dean’s Mild
  • 1 9 inch x 13 inch baking dish
  • 1 13 inch x 18 inch half sheet pan
  • 1 Large frying pan
  • 2 (6 quart) slow cookers if making an hour or two advance
  • 2 - 4 plastic squeeze bottles for the sauce
#1 - Day before: Make Avocado Chili Cream Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients for the Avocado Chili Cream sauce in a blender and process until smooth.
  2. NOTE: This sauce benefits from an overnight stay in the refrigerator.  Cover well and refrigerate overnight or up to two days.

#2 - One to Two Hours before serving: Make the Cheesy Scrambled Eggs
  1. NOTE: Don’t cook more than 24 eggs in each pan or the cooking time will be significantly impacted (ask me how I found out the very hard way.) Cooking 3 – 4 dozen eggs in a larger roasting pan is an entirely different endeavor.)

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with 2 tablespoons of butter. Use all of it for flavor.

  4. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and mix in 1 cup of milk, 8 ounces of cheese and 1 tablespoon Lawry’s seasoned salt.  Pour into the greased baking dish.

  5. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes and then stir.
  6. Bake for another 10 minutes and stir again.
  7. Continue to bake until eggs are set, stirring every 2 minutes (it will probably take an 5 - 6 additional minutes.)  Plan 30 – 35 minutes baking time total. NOTE: If you are baking more than two 9 x 13 dishes of eggs in the same oven at one time, plan on an additional 5 – 15 minutes total depending on your oven and the number of batches.  I would not do more than 4 batches in 1 oven.

MAKE AHEAD NOTE: As each batch finishes cooking, transfer them into your 6 quart slow cooker on the Low setting for up to 2 hours. Two batches of these eggs (4 dozen) will fit into one 6-quart slow cooker. Serve from the slow cooker or transfer to a more attractive aluminum catering pan for serving. (No, having the eggs in the aluminum pans just for a short amount of time will not cause discoloration.)
  1. Prior to serving, fluff eggs with a rubber spatula or large spoon by breaking up the larger curd masses into several inch size pieces.
#3 - One or Two Hours Prior to serving: Cook Hash Browns and fry sausage
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Add hash browns to a large bowl.
  3. Add seasoning and toss to combine.
  4. Add oil and toss to coat well.
  5. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking oil.
  6. Pour hash browns onto paper. Distribute hash browns evenly over paper.
  7. Dot tops of hash browns with butter.
  8. Cook for 45 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Slide paper and hash browns out of sheet pan.
MAKE AHEAD NOTE: Keep hash browns warm in a slow cooker, uncovered and set on low or in a 200 degree F oven up to an hour.
  1. To serve, crumble hash browns into a large serving bowl. 

While hash browns are baking, fry sausage:
  1. In a large skillet, over medium heat, fry the sausage until brown and cooked through, about 15 minutes.
