These Tex-Mex Mini-Frittatas are amazing. approximately 112 calories for 2 frittatas. Served along side turkey sausage and a glass of orange juice or a bowl of berries and you have a fabulously healthy low-calorie breakfast.
I love these, they are fast and simple. They reheat VERY well. I make enough for several breakfasts and then heat them up in the morning. I have been feeding a hunkering for spicy Mexican food and this hit the spot, served on a bed of pico de gallo it is amazing (calorie count only includes mini-frittatas). Buon Appetito!
Tex-Mex Mini-Frittatas (Low Calorie)
Olive Oil Spray
16 egg whites
2 ounces 2% Mexican cheese blend (I used Lucerne brand)
1/4 cup drained canned diced green chilis
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly mist 8 cups of a non-stick muffin pan with the olive oil spray.
Put 2 egg whites in each muffin cup, sprinkle with pinch of salt and pepper. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until almost set.
In a small mixing bowl, mix the cheese and chiles. Spoon the mixture evenly over the tops of the frittatas. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes longer, or until the egg is no longer runny and the cheese is melted. Transfer the muffin tin to a cooling rack and allow the frittatas to rest for 2 minutes before serving.
