Butternut Squash Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast is my favorite meal! When I have time to make breakfast in the morning it completely sets my day. If I made breakfast 9 times out of 10, I know it’s going to be a good day.

I try to sway away from the turkey bacon and eggs every once in a while to switch things up. This weekend I had leftover butternut Squash that I needed to use from this salad I made. So I made butternut squash breakfast tacos with an avocado Crema. It’s pretty easy to make and affordable too! I love that all of the ingredients are less than $10. 

Check out the recipe below.
