Recipes: Taco Egg Muffins

It’s taco time: egg edition.

You might not think to put tacos and eggs together, but they actually can make quite the healthy combo.

Eggs are a super source of protein. There’s a reason why Rocky Balboa would drink a glass of egg yolks before training (we don’t recommend doing this, though)…

Now check this out. Normally, you’d splatter a little ketchup or hot sauce on your eggs to give them some added taste. See, we know that you can do better than that…

This recipe includes most of the components of your average taco without the carb-heavy tortilla included. What could be better than that?

Plus, you can make these muffins into little cups, which are easy to bring with you wherever you go!

So what are you waiting for? Scroll down and see how you can make these heavenly taco treats for yourself!
