Breakfast Tacos with Homemade Salsa

I love breakfast for dinner! I don't do it often, but it really is a cheap, quick and simple way to make dinner. Scott isn't a big fan, so when I told him I was making breakfast tacos, he wasn't thrilled. The end result, however, was FANTASTIC! This was definitely filling enough to make for dinner! Plus the flavors of the salsa were amazing. If I remember right, we both went back for seconds!
