These are easy and versatile. You can also add bacon or sausage and use egg beaters or egg whites too. The taste reminds me of chili 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. You can bake a bunch of these and people can grab their individual serving. I did add bacon when testing. It added a smoky flavor. The cheese and cumin really add a ton of flavor to the eggs. I suggest using fresh cilantro too... it adds that last punch of flavor. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Green Chili Breakfast Tortilla Cups

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray a non-stick muffin pan with cooking spray.
  3. Heat tortillas in microwave for 45 seconds.
  4. Mix together eggs, cilantro, cumin, lemon or lime pepper seasoning salt.
  5. Place one tortilla in each muffin cup, folding in to fit.
  6. Place about 1/2 ounce of cheese in the bottom.
  7. Place a small amount of green chilies on top of the cheese and meat if you use it. I don't they are great without it.
  8. Pour egg mixture on top leaving a little room.
  9. Top with remainder of the ounce of cheese.
  10. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Let cool a little bit before eating, they are really hot.
