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!

  • 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.

  1. Marking this one down for sure for my picky son! He loves his eggs and this is a great fun way to eat eggs on the go! I love it

  2. This looks great. I love things that will reheat well at work. just a note, you don't have green chilies listed on your ingredient list.

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

  4. 5 stars
    This is such a good recipe to make and then bring leftovers to work. All of your recipes are awesome left over, but this one is so easy too!
