These quick and easy bacon-and-egg tacos come together in just 25 minutes. If you aren’t a cilantro fan, thinly sliced scallion tops are an excellent swap. Pro tip: This low-and-slow method for cooking the eggs is the trick to getting them extra fluffy and light.


  • 8 slices bacon

  • ½ cup white vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided

  • 3 medium radishes, thinly sliced

  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 8 6-in. corn tortillas, warmed

  • 1 avocado, peeled and thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup packed fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems

  • Hot sauce, for serving


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium. Working in 2 batches, add bacon and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings from skillet.

  2. Meanwhile, stir vinegar, ½ cup water, sugar, and 1 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan over medium-high. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar and salt. Remove from heat and stir in radishes. Let stand for 10 minutes.

  3. Add eggs and remaining ½ teaspoon salt to skillet; increase heat to medium-high. Scramble eggs, stirring in a figure-8 pattern, until curds are just set and fluffy, 2 to 4 minutes.

  4. Place 1 bacon slice on each tortilla. Top with eggs, avocado, pickled radishes, and cilantro. Serve with hot sauce.
