Low Fodmap Fajitas Migas

September 19 , 2017 by: Taco Chef No Taco

In a rut? A fajita style taco with an egg base gives a change up for typical taco Tuesday.

This taco has a few upsides, simple cheap ingredients and a very easy prep. But it fell short for us on the taste factor.  We wanted to like it and it wasn’t terrible, but really wasn’t special in any way.

Taste:  🌮🌮

This taco would be better used as a breakfast burrito. The eggs are a nice change of pace but there could be a little more seasoning to help give it a little more flavor. We found it a bit underwhelming in taste.

Appearance:  🌮🌮

Not the best looking taco we’ve tried. If we made it again we might try to add a little more color to it. The recipe suggests using two colors of bell peppers. We used only the red and it seems like using two might be helpful. Adding a bit more color like some diced tomatoes might help as well.

Cost:  🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮

Another greatly affordable taco. This may be the cheapest taco yet.

Difficulty:  🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮

One thing this one has going for it is ease of preparation. Prep to serving only took 15 minutes.  This is another reason why we think this might be more useful as a breakfast style burrito. Would make for a nice quick meal.

Verdict:  No taco!
