This keto-friendly recipe for Hot Dog and Egg Tacos is easy to make and the perfect breakfast, brunch, or breakfast for dinner recipe. Made using low-carb tortillas, Coleman Natural Hot Dogs and a fried egg topped with avocado and freshly made salsa, these keto-friendly breakfast tacos are one of those recipes you’re sure to come back to again and again.
Sometimes I really get tired of eating the same things for dinner and I thought it would be fun to try something new. I am always looking for easy, keto-friendly recipes that are low in carbs, high in protein, and are easy to prepare.
At home, we all love hot dogs but this time I wanted to do something a bit different. I wanted to get creative and think outside the bun. For this recipe, I took inspiration from the Guatemalan “mixtas” which are very similar to a hot dog but instead of a hot dog bun they are made with corn tortillas.
For my version of these Hot Dog and Egg Tacos I used a low-carb wheat tortilla instead of the corn tortilla, and instead of using guacamole, I topped them with fresh avocado and homemade salsa. I treated these more like a taco than a traditional hot dog.
I really like that this recipe comes together in no time and it’s also kid-friendly. If you want to save even more time, you can use store-bought salsa, as this will save you some time and effort.
The best hot dogs
The key to making this recipe a total success is using quality ingredients, starting with the hot dogs. When it comes to hot dogs, quality is so important. I only buy Coleman Natural Hot Dogs because they not only taste great, but because I can feel good about serving them to my family!
Coleman Natural Foods produces all-natural meats sourced from American family farmers that raise their animals with no antibiotics or added hormones, ever. As I shared in a previous post, making sure that my pork and beef is raised without antibiotics is really important for me. And, Coleman Natural 100% Beef Hot Dogs contain no added nitrates or nitrites, no artificial preservatives or ingredients. When I buy Coleman Natural products I can feel confident that I am feeding my family better. You can find Coleman Natural products at Sprouts like I do, or at your local grocery store.

Tell me: have you ever had a hot dog in a tortilla? If you haven’t you’re really missing out. I grew up having hot dogs in tortillas topped with guacamole. Like I shared before, they are called “mixtas” and are a very popular Guatemalan street food.
I really love how these “Guatemalan mixtas” inspired keto-friendly Hot Dog and Egg Tacos came out. I’m sure they will now be a permanent part of our dinner rotation. They’re ideal for those days when you want to get dinner on the table quickly and with little effort.
