Breakfast tacos are a great way to get a quick meal to start your day while using up last night's leftovers.

We made these tacos with mashed potatoes and the shredded meat from some smoked chicken thighs. You could easily substitute bacon, sausage or even use black beans if you wanted a vegetarian option.

The two layers of sauce are what makes these tacos truly incredible. The drizzle of sriracha is just enough heat to grab your attention and teh salsa verde cools it right down with waves of flavor.

I use flour tortillas because they wrap easily. When I want to really take these to the next level I use corn tortillas and deal with the extra mess :)
