ninfas breakfast taco recipe

Ninfa’s is nothing short of a Houston institution. Our family regularly visits The Original Ninfa’s On Navigation, and it’s always a tasty experience that leaves our bellies full of delicious Tex-Mex and our hearts full of joy.

Thankfully, Ninfa’s is still offering dine-in, to-go, and delivery (via DoorDash), and you should always support local restaurants any time you’re able to do so during these difficult times. Of course, ordering takeout for every meal isn’t financially viable for many of us, so there’s still the need to do some at-home cooking throughout the week.

Thankfully, Ninfa’s started a YouTube series during the pandemic where they offer up some of their most popular recipes so you can recreate them at home! The videos are designed to teach parents and kids to work together to cook these simple, but delectable, recipes.

Today, we’re taking a look at their Ranchero Breakfast Tacos recipe, because who doesn’t love breakfast tacos?! They’re the perfect way to start your day. Heck, they’re great for lunch, dinner, or any time you darn well please.



You can get all of the ingredients you’ll need delivered straight to your home with Instacart (review) or another grocery delivery service.

  • Olive Oil
  • Flour Tortillas
  • Eggs
  • Salt
  • Cheese
  • Ranchero Sauce



All you need to do is heat the olive oil in a skillet, scramble the eggs and cook them to the consistency you like, portion them out into warmed tortillas (you can warm up tortillas in the microwave between damp paper towels for a few seconds), add cheese and ranchero sauce (you can buy this or make your own), and serve immediately!
