My husband Tommy LOVES fajitas, so this breakfast version is a winner in my house! If you make this for lunch or dinner, plan on 2 per person and maybe a side of Mexican Cauli Rice.
From the beautiful vegetarian cookbook (affiliate link) Love Real Food by Kathryn Taylor, which has over 100 feel good vegetarian favorites with beautiful photos all taken by Katheryn herself. She has so many mouth watering meatless recipes, it was hard to choose which one to make first. Hope you enjoy!
Breakfast Fajitas Variations
- If you’re not a fan of fried eggs, scramble them instead.
- Use a Mexican blend of cheese or cheddar in place of Feta cheese or queso fresco.

Spicy Breakfast Fajitas with Eggs and Guacamole
- 6 ounces avocado, from 1 large or 1 1/2 medium
- 1 tablespoon lime juice, or more if needed
- Kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 red yellow, or orange bell peppers, sliced into 1⁄2-inch-wide strips
- 1/2 medium white onion, sliced into 1⁄2-inch-wide wedges
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- Pinch red pepper flakes
- Kosher salt
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
For the guacamole:
- Using a spoon, scoop the flesh of the avocados into a small bowl.
- Add the lime juice and 1⁄4 teaspoon salt and mash with a pastry cutter, potato masher, or fork until the mixture is blended and no longer chunky.
- Taste and add additional lime juice and/or salt, if necessary.
To prepare the veggies:
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
- Once the oil is shimmering, add the bell peppers and onion, cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes, and a few dashes of salt. Toss to combine, cover the pan, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are easily pierced by a fork, 5 to 8 minutes.
- Uncover and continue cooking, stirring often, until the vegetables are lightly charred on the edges, about 3 to 5 minutes more.
- Add the garlic, toss well, and cook for another minute.
- Remove the pan from the heat and drizzle in the lime juice. Toss, season to taste with additional salt, and cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, to prepare the fajitas:
- In a small skillet over medium heat, warm each tortilla on both sides until heated through. Stack the warmed tortillas on a plate as they are done and cover them with a kitchen towel to keep warm.
- Wipe the skillet, spray with oil over medium-low heat.
- Carefully crack an egg and pour it into the skillet without breaking the yolk. Cook covered until the whites set, about 2 minutes, or longer to taste.
- Transfer the egg to a plate and repeat with the remaining eggs.
- To assemble the breakfast fajitas, spread the guacamole on each tortilla, top each with an egg, followed by some veggies. Sprinkle with cheese, cilantro, and freshly ground pepper. Serve with hot sauce and/or salsa on the side.
