These magical creations don’t *have* to contain eggs—though most do. You can make a sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast taco. You can make a vegan sweet potato and black bean breakfast taco. You can even make one with crushed up tortilla chips on top.

There is no wrong way to make a breakfast taco, only many delicious ways.

Here are 17 easy, breakfast-y combos to try.

1. AVOCADO, BACON, HOT SAUCE

HOW TO MAKE IT
Cook a few strips of chopped bacon in a skillet until it’s crispy. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon, but leave the bacon fat behind. Add 2 whisked eggs, season with salt and pepper, and cook over medium-low heat till the eggs are just set but still soft, about 2 minutes. Pile onto a warm tortilla and top with the bacon, sliced avocado and hot sauce. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and diced white onion before serving.

2. TOMATO, PICKLED JALAPEÑOS, QUESO FRESCO
