Book Review: The Breakfast Taco Book

Awhile back I picked up the Kindle version of The Breakfast Taco Book, but it took me way too long to get to it! Hello Sarah, don’t be so busy šŸ˜‰


Her taco book is more a weaving of local history and her awesome humor than a “standard” cookbook, but that is what makes Hilah fun to follow. Fair warning – herĀ potty-mouth/humor is present in this book. I snorted at the reviews on Amazon of “shocked” readers. I have a feeling they hadn’t heard of Hilah before and only grabbed it because it had been aĀ freebieĀ for a few days. Sheesh, don’t be soĀ sensitive! Enjoy the book for what it is – and for me…well breakfast tacos are not very common here. So it got me thinking and wanting to try it. She lays out the basicĀ ingredientsĀ one might find in the tacos and easy recipes to make those items. As for puttingĀ theĀ tacos together? No, that is up toĀ theĀ reader to get creative with – a good thing I say! As a bonus, if you are reading the book on a computer, you can click-through to see her related videos on each topic in the book.

Anyhow, I kept oursĀ vegetarian – each of us had 2 tortillas worth:


  • taco flour tortillas (heated in a dry skillet until puffy and smelling great)
  • vegetarianĀ refriedĀ beans (a bit smeared on each tortilla)
  • scrambled organic eggs (2 each)
  • queso fresco cheese (cojita cheese) (as much as everyone wanted)
  • salsa (liberally applied)
  • home fries with onion & garlic, served on the side

Verdict? De-l-i-cious.

We need to have this more often! Thanks Hilah!

    1. Ya know, not that many! I just sent 8 more to the ladies at the local Safeway (they love getting them). I try to only keep the really, really good ones. So I don’t have a huge mess in my kitchen šŸ˜‰

          1. Exactly, and if you ship book rate, it won’t cost you too much. Giveaways increase traffic. And, you can make it mandatory that people follow your blog to enter. Bonus! šŸ™‚ I’ll give you some plugs if you do it on my facebook vedged out page!

    2. Sure! And no kidding, when I do giveaways on my Trailcooking blog, they are quite popular šŸ™‚ Love Rafflecopter as well. (What is funny is one of my last giveaways, the shoe insoles? Wow, were people excited!)

      1. I was excited! The only reason we didn’t enter is we stopped wearing insoles after reading born to run! Not into barefoot yet, but try to keep support to a minimum, we have less injuries that way! Rafflecopter is awesome!
