I have totally been on an egg kick lately. I have been having hard-boiled eggs for breakfast all week and I am finally starting to get bored with them. So I thought, what kind of egg can I make that won’t cost me too much time in the kitchen and I can take them to work with me? Well, I have been craving spicy food like there is no tomorrow, so why not make spicy eggs? Ahhh, now that’s what were talking about spicy eggs!! So I took one of my favorite combos, jalapeno and cheese and threw them in some eggs and out came Mini Jalapeno and Cheese Egg Bites! YUM!!!, No, SUPER YUM!!!!
Oh my gosh these little egg bites are amazing! They taste like nachos, but in an egg. I am so happy and mad because I should have made these a long time ago. The eggs are creamy with the perfect hint of spice. Really, they taste like a nachos with jalapeno. So if you like nachos, you will love these mini egg bites.
You know what else is to love? They are only 9 calories each! Yes, 9! Crazy!! So I made the serving size for 4, but really, eat more and enjoy! They are just so guilt-free! I made a batch and ate a few and popped the remaining in the freezer. Now I have a simple grab and go breakfast. Just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and they are ready to pop in your mouth! Perfect!
They are super easy to make too! I used a mini muffin tin, sprayed with cooking spray and added one sliced pickled jalapeno to each muffin tin. Then I topped it with cheese and poured my egg and milk mixture over the top. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and they are done. It really can’t get easier than that! For the egg I used egg substitute. In case you don’t know what egg substitute is, it’s just egg whites in a carton. It’s low-calorie and contains no cholesterol and it’s good for you too.
