  • When selecting eggs, opt for organic, free-range eggs for the best flavor.
  • For a spicy twist, substitute jalapeno pepperjack cheese for the pepperjack cheese.

  • Substitute olive oil with avocado oil for a healthier option. Avocado oil is high in monounsaturated fats and is a great source of vitamin E, both of which are beneficial for heart health.
  • Substitute pepperjack cheese with cheddar cheese for a milder flavor. Cheddar cheese is a milder cheese than pepperjack and will give the tacos a less intense flavor.

Vegetarian Refried Bean & Egg Tacos Replace the eggs with 1 can (15 ounces) of black beans, cooked and mashed. Top with shredded cheddar cheese instead of pepperjack cheese. Omit the sour cream.
