12 cup muffin tin
8whole wheat small tortillas
salt and pepper
1red pepper, diced
1small red onion, diced
½cupshredded heese – cheddaror a Tex-Mex mix of some sort
Greek yogurt or sour cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat your muffin tray with cooking spray.
Using 8 small whole wheat tortillas stuff your muffin cups. I wanted to cut each tortilla in half, and so only use 4, but my husband was in charge of the cup stuffing and he is a "more is better kind of guy” – so we used a whole small tortilla for each muffin cup. You can see from the picture how he pushed them into the tins.
Make a “scrambled” egg mixture – however you like your scrambled eggs. We used 4 large eggs with a splash of milk, salt and pepper. You could also just use egg whites. Set this aside.
Heat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add a touch of olive oil if needed.
Dice one red pepper and one small red onion and sauté until soft. We seasoned ours with a Tex-Mex spice blend.
Meanwhile, dice and seed a tomato or two, chopped some green onions and cilantro.
Assemble the egg cups.
In each tortilla shell add a heaping tablespoon of the red pepper and onion mixture. Top with a few pieces of tomato, a sprinkle of cilantro and some green onion. Pour egg mixture on top, until muffin tin (not the tortilla shell) is almost full. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of each.
Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the tortilla is nicely browned.
