Shakshuka Tacos

Or Shakshuco if you will!

A perfect blend of Shakshuka and Huevos Rancheros- these are my new breakfast go to! After seeing that Jamie from Everything Delish made Shakshuka toast it got me thinking about a gluten free alternative. I love breakfast tacos more than anything and if I’m not eating tacos I’m probably eating Shakshuka so I am just shocked it took me this long to make this pairing.


It's shakshuka, it's a taco…IT'S BOTH!

  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 1 can Mutti crushed tomatoes
  • 5 eggs
  • 5 corn tortillas
  • garnishes of choice: herbs, cheese, etc


  • Add the olive oil to a skillet and begin to heat the pan on medium heat.
  • Add in the finely chopped onion and garlic to the skillet and simmer until transclucent.
  • Add in the spices and stir together so the onions are coated. Let the spices toast for a minute or so.
  • Pour in your crushed tomatoes and bring the sauce to a strong simmer.
  • Lower the heat so the sauce is at a light simmer. Using a spoon, make a small indent in the sauce and crack an egg into the indent. Repeat with all 5 eggs (or as many will fit in your skillet- you need one per taco)
  • Cover the skillet and let the eggs poach in the sauce until the reach your desired consistency. I prefer my egg yolks to be just slightly jammy but you could serve the softer or more cooked.
  • In the toaster oven, toast your tortiallas so they become slighty firm but not so crunchy you can't fold them. This takes about 2 mins on 180 degrees C. I like to add crumbled feta cheese to mine while the toast.
  • Once the tortillas are warmed and the eggs are cooked, scoop one egg and sauce into each tortilla. Garnish with cheese, herbs, or red pepper flakes and enjoy!
