Green Chile Beef Egg Cups

Green Chile Beef Egg Cups

School has begun! Well, at least for a lot of us. If you haven’t yet started school, it’s coming soon and I am sure you’re feeling a little anxious about getting a wholesome breakfast in, yet doing it quickly. These Green Chile Beef Egg Cups are the answer to your prayers. 

Not only do these egg cups take very little effort to make when meal prepping on a Sunday, but I have to admit… they are delicious!! I took some over to my sister (an avid egg cup hater) and she texted me this: 

“I’m gonna make a big batch of these when u post it. I usually hate egg muffins but these are dank!”

Haha! Success!! Perfect for beating the back to school chaos or just great to make if you are sick of making breakfast every morning.

Here is how to do it. It’s Simple:

First, you brown some meat in a skillet with onions, a can of green chiles, some salt, pepper and cumin. (PS. I love the OXO Ground Meat Chopper & Turner when browning meat because it helps break up the meat while cooking!)

Then, you whisk up some eggs with unsweetened coconut milk (don’t worry, these have zero coconut flavor to them!)

Next, distribute the meat mixture into a muffin pan. I use the OXO Silicone Baking Cups, which I swear by for preventing a sticky, egg mess! The egg cups come out smoothly because of the non-stick lining. 

Last, pour in the egg mixture to the handy fill line in the Baking Cups – this will make sure your egg cups are all even sizes. Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

And TA-DA! Easy peasy!! Let the Green Chile Beef Egg Cups cool before storing and just reheat throughout the week in the microwave for 45 seconds – 1 minute.

    These are delicious and my 1 year-old and 3 year-old devoured them.
    Very different from the average egg cup since they are basically a breakfast taco.
    I used half the eggs so there was more meat filling in each bite and added 4oz of melty cheese because we don’t have any dairy issues over here. Yum.

    Does this make 12 muffin cups? One muffin cup per serving?

    Good recipe. I freeze them. I greased the pan with avocado oil and they still stuck. I’d try a cooking spray or use cup cake cups

      I use parchment paper muffin liners, they work so good! They peel right off of the cooled egg cups!

    Can I use almond milk instead of coconut milk?
