Southwest Breakfast Tacos are one of my all-time favorite weekend brunch ideas. These tacos are incredibly easy and SO delicious.

These tacos are great for a brunch with friends, easy breakfast for the morning after kids sleepovers, or just a quick and delicious meal for yourself.

My favorite way to serve these is to set out the skillet full of sausage, veggies, and scrambled eggs, tortillas, cheese, hot sauce, and cilantro, and let everyone make their own tacos.

It's a super fun (and so easy!) family brunch idea. Plan these for an upcoming weekend soon – your family and friends will thank you!
