How to Make Tamed Jalepeno Egg Bites


  1. Spray the Egg Bite Mold (available on Amazon) with oil.
    Put 2 slices of Jalapenos into each cup.
  2. Break the eggs into a blender. Add cheeses, sour cream and Jalapeno peppers to the mix. Blend on high until completely blended and smooth.
  3. Pour the mix into the molds until full. Take a tiny fork and make sure the slices of jalapenos stayed on the bottom.
  4. Place the mold onto the wire rack from your Instant Pot. Carefully cover with foil to seal out any water from dripping into the eggs.
  5. Pour 2 cups of water into your Instant Pot. Very carefully set the trivet with the eggs on it, into the pot.
  6. Close the lid. Set the Instant Pot to 'STEAM' and change the time to 8 minutes on HIGH Pressure.
  7. At the end of the cycle, turn the pot OFF. Let it naturally release for 7 minutes or longer. Carefully (it's hot!) Remove the egg tray from the pot. If it's still hot, let it cool for another 5 minutes.
  8. Lay a plate over the mold and flip it over so the eggs can settle onto the plate. Shake a little Braggs Sprinkle Seasoning on the tops if desired.
  9. Serve with a splash of Frank's RedHot Chili Lime Sauce if you like more spice. (The tamed jalapenos are tangy but not HOT so you may want to add more heat)
