These are easy and versatile. You can also add bacon or sausage. Use egg beaters or egg whites too. The taste reminds me of Chile Rellenos. This recipe is for 12 tortilla cups but you can easily make it smaller, just use 1 egg per cup.

Yum! This recipe is perfect if you're hosting a buffet breakfast or brunch. It's a healthier breakfast option. You can bake a bunch of these and people can grab their individual serving. We did add bacon when testing and loved the smoky flavor. We loved the mix of cilantro, with green chilis and cheese. Cumin flavor stands out too. One of these is very filling.

Note: We'd recommend putting a baking sheet under the cupcake tins while baking. Ours did leak a little while baking. The Test Kitchen
