Eggs With Ham And Spinach Tacos Ingredients
I try to sneak in healthy nutrients into foods and this recipe is one example. My kids love eggs so I add spinach puree to them. The flavor doesn’t change much and my kids still eat the eggs. They do call them “green eggs” and love them. Thank you, Dr. Seuss, for helping me win this green eggs with ham battle!
I include ham in the eggs just for my husband who loves to eat meat in every meal if I let him. If you are vegetarian/vegan just skip the cooked ham. Also, you can use different meat. I use ham to coax my kids into eating the nutrient-dense meal with Dr. Seuss’s story.
We love corn tortilla. If you prefer you can skip the tortilla, use flour-based tortillas, or some tortillas are made out of veggies. Whatever your choice, just cook the tortillas according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

I use a food processor to make the spinach puree for the eggs with ham and spinach tacos recipe. I love the pan I scramble the eggs in. It is not only a stainless steel pan so your food is not contaminated with chemicals, but also non-stick so your food doesn’t stick! I have stainless steel pans that aren’t non-stick and I use them for different purposes. In this case, I am using the stainless steel pan that isn’t non-stick for wilting the spinach. If you don’t have a colander, you can use a big sieve (also known as a strainer).
