Taco Breakfast Egg Muffins

T-T-T-TACOOOOO.

Except not really because E-E-E-EGGG MUFFINS.

IE: Portable, protein-PACKED egg snack of cheesy, spicy taco goodness, that are perfect for healthy breakfast meal prep, but without the CARBS. <–Keto Low Carb Egg Muffins my friends!

Or the work of trying to pile your taco HIGH with toppings and gracefully fit it into your mouth without aforementioned toppings spilling out all over your plate. Or really, onto your lap.

AND you wore white pants that day. #AlwaysHappens.

Don’t lie. You’ve been there.

Taco Tuesday. It is the champion of my right now in the sense that is does not just happen on Tuesdays.  I mean, why limit the goodness of tacos to only ONE day a week you know? I say Taco ALL THE DAYS.

Especially since they are super easy to make and have SO many varieties. You can make mason jar healthy taco salad, you could make green curry pork tacos with pineapple salsa, cauliflower rice fish taco bowls , or you could even make banana pancakes: TACO STYLE.

But, like we just talked about, tacos? NOT desk-lunch friendly.

How awkward and unprofessional would you be greeting SUPER important flashy client with a big ol’ salsa stain on your shirt. Umm, ZERO percent professional amIright?

Which is why these egg cups were invented for all the people of the world who love tacos (umm, everyone) and want to include them in ALL their meals without the risk of looking like the kind of “adult” who can’t even eat food without a bib.

Which might be an exaggeration. I mean egg cups were were probably JUST invented for the YUM and PROTEIN and lack of carbs (which will keep aforementioned adorable white pants fitting REALLY NICE) but I am just making sure we cover all the possibilities.

You can also do just as many things with them as tacos. I mean there’s egg muffins with ham, kale and cauliflower rice, buffalo chicken egg muffins and even Mediterranean breakfast egg muffins!

Did I also mention that egg muffins, and cooking eggs in the oven in general, are legit the easiest things that you will ever make in all the years that you have on this planet we call earth?

Well, they are.

If you can crack an egg (I know those shells are tricky, but we can do this!) and cook some stuff in a pan while stirring and mix some homemade fajita seasoning recipe, YOU’RE GONNA NAIL IT.

If you also like things that are spicy and cheesy and just all together delicious? These are gonna NAIL your taste buds.

Don’t worry, in a RLY RLY good, not painful kinda way.

BUT, before we foray into the Mexican fiesta that is the taco egg muffin, we MUST discuss the MAJOR MAJOR need to spray your muffin pan.

And then spray again.  You need to be LIBERAL with the spray my friends.

I completely forgot to do this the first time I made these.  Straight up: I had to THROW away the muffin tins.  The amount of stick that eggs can have? I HAD ZERO CLUES until that fiasco.

I warned you.

The last parting warning I leave is this:

Don’t be alarmed if you decide to forego “real” taco Tuesday (or taco Wednesday, Thursday, Friday etc.) because taco flavored goodness inside a creamy egg muffin sounds SO MUCH BETTER instead.
