The Breakfast Taco

Hill Country's Elizabeth Karmel shows us how it's done

Sometimes you wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy. Other times you open your eyes just wide enough to watch Game of Thrones in bed for seven hours.

Either way, breakfast tacos fuel your daily goals. In today’s In the Kitchen video, Hill Country’s Elizabeth Karmel shows us how to make them.

Using ingredients like avocado, pimiento cheese (which we also have the recipe for), and hot sauce, it’s obvious Karmel is in the right business. If you’ve never been to her Texas-inspired restaurants in NYC, they are, in a word, amazebrilldelishawesome.

Karmel’s taking a brisket version of her masterpiece on the road this Saturday night as part of the Austin Food & Wine Festival’s Rock Your Taco Celebrity Chef Showdown. If you’re in ATX, you. must. go.

Just don’t brush your teeth with a bottle of Jack beforehand.
