Quesadilla Breakfast Taco with Spicy Ranchero Sauce

Rachel Riesgraf
If a quesadilla, omelette, and breakfast taco had a baby, it would be a Quesadilla Breakfast Taco! Melty cheese is sandwiched between an omelette style egg and tortilla then filled with taco seasoned sausage, bell peppers and the most amazing Spicy Ranchero Sauce! Serve with fresh avocado, tomato and lettuce. You're going to love this insanely delicious and fun breakfast!

Servings 5 tacos


  • 8-inch non-stick skillet


  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon each cumin and paprika
  • ½ teaspoon each garlic powder, dried oregano and salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 5 eggs
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 8-10 ounces colby jack cheese, shredded (aobut 2 - 2 ½ cups)
  • 5 6-inch tortilla shells
  • 1 bell pepper, diced

Spicy Ranchero Sauce

  • ¼ cup sour cream or greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons milk or buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill, dried parsley, garlic powder and chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper and salt


  • Heat the olive oil and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Add the ground pork and cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Seaosn with chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, dried oregano, and salt. Add the water and simmer until the sauce thickens. Set aside.
  • Grease an 8-inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. In a small bowl, whisk together one egg and one tablespoon of milk. Pour into the skillet, cover with a lid and heat just until cooked through, about one minute. Sprinkle with a handful of cheese and cover with a tortilla. Cook another minute until the cheese is melted, then use a spatula to flip the egg and tortilla so the tortilla is on the bottom and the egg is on the top.
  • Sprinkle the egg with a little more cheese then add some taco seasoned sausage and diced bell pepper over half of the egg and drizzle with spicy ranchero sauce, being careful not to fill it too full. Fold the egg/tortilla in half over the filling. Fry on each side until golden brown. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Serve with more spicy ranchero sauce and fresh tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, and pickled red onion, if desired!
