Keeping with the Cinco de Mayo theme… I give you Mexican Egg and Quinoa Muffins!

Mexican Egg Quinoa Muffins

I just love to make all kinds of things in my muffin pan. These muffins are so darn good I just had to share. Not only are they super easy to make, they’re good for you too.

These little muffins can make a great breakfast or a quick snack for the busy week. Just pop them in the microwave and then top with salsa. That sounds like a perfect combination to me!

Mexican Egg Quinoa Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quinoa, cooked
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup of chopped veggies (broccoli, peppers, zucchini, onions, spinach, or any of your favorites)
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheese (cheddar, feta, swiss, or no cheese if you don’t do dairy)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  
  2. In a large bowl beat eggs and mix in cooked quinoa until coated.  
  3. Gently add chopped veggies. If using broccoli I recommend steaming for a few minutes before adding to the egg mixture. Add cheese (optional) and salt and pepper.  
  4. Line muffin pan with liners or spray with cooking spray. Add the mix to muffin pan and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Top with your favorite salsa, guacamole, or a dollop of greek yogurt.

Disfruta!

  1. Any reason why you couldn’t make this as a loaf? To make it a little more mexican flavored, you could use green chiles and a bit of onion.

    1. Sure you could make it in a loaf. I’m just not sure of baking times. Green chiles and onion sound like a delicious addition :)
