Here’s how to make egg salad tacos in a few simple steps.


To make egg salad tacos, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped. You can remove a couple of yolks if you prefer more whites.
  • 1 cup of chopped pickles. You can use any kind of pickles you like, such as dill, sweet, or spicy.
  • 1/2 cup of chopped red onion. You can also use green onion, scallions, or chives for a milder flavor.
  • 3/4 cup of organic mayonnaise. You can use regular, light, or vegan mayonnaise, depending on your preference.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 8 almond tortillas. You can use any kind of tortillas you like, such as corn, flour, or coconut.
  • Olive oil for frying.
  • Everything but the bagel seasoning or any other seasoning you like. You can also use taco seasoning, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, or chili powder for a more traditional taco flavor.
  • Chopped spinach or cabbage for topping. You can also use lettuce, kale, arugula, or any other leafy greens you like.


To make egg salad tacos, follow these steps:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the chopped eggs, pickles, onion, and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well until everything is well coated and creamy. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat some olive oil. Lightly fry the tortillas for about 10 seconds per side, or until slightly crisp and golden. Sprinkle with everything but the bagel seasoning or your choice of seasoning. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
  3. To assemble the tacos, spoon some egg salad over each tortilla. Top with chopped spinach or cabbage and more seasoning if desired. Enjoy your egg salad tacos while they’re warm or cold.
