Do you live for taco Tuesdays? Now you can enjoy all your favorite taco flavors in this Taco Frittata, perfect for breakfast or dinner!

If my wife could vote on what we ate for dinner, we’d be having Mexican food every night of the week! With Fat Tuesday coming up, I wanted to make a recipe that was lent friendly with a taco Tuesday twist! This taco frittata hit the spot with the whole family! Even my 15-month-old!

What is a frittata?

I’ve gotten some questions on Instagram on what makes a frittata, a quiche, and an omelet different. The difference between quiche and frittata is the crust! Quiches have it, and frittatas don’t. The difference between an omelet and a frittata is the frittata is cooked slowly over low heat while an omelet is cooked quickly over higher heat. Additionally, omelets are served hot straight from the stove, while frittatas are often served at room temperature.

What should I put in my taco frittata?

To make this taco frittata, you’ll need the following:

  • Eggs
  • FUD Cotija Cheese
  • Bell peppers – choose your favorite colors!
  • Diced green chilis
  • Red Onions
  • Taco seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder
  • Cooking or avocado spray

The great thing about this frittata recipe is that you can make it your own! You can add ground beef or turkey, breakfast sausage, or any other veggies! I like to sneak in some green veggies (i.e. spinach) so that I can sneak them in my toddler’s diet. Take note that this recipe is a little on the mild side, so if you like it spicier, feel free to add some cayenne pepper or a jalapeno!

You can bake a frittata in either an oven-safe pan or a ceramic baking dish like this quiche dish!

Can you make this recipe ahead of time?

What I love best about this taco frittata – or any frittata – is that it is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! And you can easily make it ahead of time and reheat for any meal. It’s great for meal prep, especially if you’re running out the door in the morning!
