One of my favorite breakfast foods of all time are breakfast tacos. I just love how satisfying they are and how they can be customized to different tastes and likes. The problem with breakfast tacos are the tortillas. As much as I love breakfast tacos, I can’t justify absorbing so many calories at my first meal of the day. So, to compromise, I put at twist on a favorite of mine – the Black Bean and Egg Stuffed Avocado.
