Del Taco's Macho Bacon and Egg Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Tardis ("time travel" for my U.S. readers) back to 2001 and I'm a displaced starving actress and student living in Southern California. Breakfast is an after-thought in a state where most of the population doesn't wake-up till three in the afternoon. Except in the most unlikeliest of places: Del Taco. Located in the western portion of the U.S and now in parts of Florida it's a fast food chain that primarily serves Americanized Mexican cuisine similar to Taco Bell. Unlike its competitor though, Del Taco serves hamburgers and several foodie cult classics like their Deluxe Chili-Cheese Fries and their Macho Breakfast Burrito. These days I mostly split my time here on the east-coast with Europe and rarely fly west anymore so I'm forced to recreate this recipe at home. It's one of my favorite foods, and I eat it as much for dinner as I do breakfast. FYI, don't forget some super hot jalapeƱos for those who share my love of hot!

  • tortillas
  • pinch of Southwest Spice mix
    (less than 1/8 teaspoon)
  • Cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • chopped red ripe tomatoes
  • 2-3 eggs (or substitute)
  • shredded lettuce
  • center cut bacon (or turkey bacon)
  • sour cream
  • salsa.

  2. Mix eggs and spice mix.
  3. Cook eggs using non-fat cooking spray.
  4. Fry bacon (draining grease if using center cut).

  2. Roll into tortilla and grill seam side down in frying pan till slightly crisp. Flip, repeat, and eat.
