Tex-Mex Mini-Frittatas (Low Calorie)



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!

Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 10 MinTotal time: 15 Min

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly mist 8 cups of a non-stick muffin pan with the olive oil spray.
  2. Put 2 egg whites in each muffin cup, sprinkle with pinch of salt and pepper. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until almost set.
  3. 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.

  7. Love these ideas! I have chickens, so all about the (whole) eggs, but these recipes seem adaptable!
