Description

Tex Mex egg muffins are a delicious, filling, and healthy breakfast or snack. They are light and fluffy, perfect for meal prep, and freezer-friendly.


Ingredients

Units
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 + 1/2 cups shredded Tex Mex cheese, divided
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup green onion, finely chopped

For the taco seasoning*

  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 12-cup silicone muffin pan generously with cooking spray oil. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, 1 cup cheese, bell pepper, green onion, and taco seasoning until smooth.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into each muffin cup, filling it about 3/4 full to prevent overflow. Top with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes until fully set. Let the egg muffins cool slightly, then serve. 

Notes

* Taco seasoning: You can replace the listed spices with 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning.

How to store: Keep leftover egg muffins in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Allow them to cool to room temperature before wrapping individually in plastic wrap or storing in an airtight container.

How to freeze: Allow the egg bites to cool completely, then wrap them the individually in plastic wrap and store in a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 2-3 months

How to reheat: You can eat these Tex Mex egg muffins cold (especially if you’re in a hurry), or you can reheat them in the microwave for 10-30 seconds on low to medium heat. For best results, pop them in a 350F oven for 10 minutes, or air fryer for 5 minutes.
