Tex-Mex Breakfast Muffins, is a healthy and quick breakfast that everyone will love! A lightening speed meal to start off the day on the right foot.
Once upon a time, I had more hours in the day than I knew what to do with.
I would sleep until 9 or 10 am, get up and workout, make a leisurely
breakfast brunch fit for a king. Then go about my day doing highly important things like getting my nails done and reading glam mag articles on “Trendy New Ways to Wear a Scarf.”
Of course, this is a fairytale.
I don’t remember the last time I slept past 9. 10 is laughable. My workouts are rushed, breakfast is rushed… heck, my whole little world is a whirlwind of juggling meals, homework, sports, and family drama. Sound familiar?
Even so, life is good.
We laugh a lot in between the rushing around, and we take our weekend wind-down time pretty seriously.
I’m a firm believer in living a simple life, not over-complicating things. But sometimes, with four different schedules, it just can’t be helped!
Serving healthy and inspired breakfasts during the work/school week is tricky. In effort to get a few extra minutes of shut-eye, we often don’t allow ourselves time to prepare a proper meal.
We’ve gone through the gamut of quick breakfast items: cereals, bars, smoothies, instant hot cereals, toast… I get bored.
So every now-and-again I’ll come up with a quick breakfast idea to throw in the mix; something that catches everyone’s attention.
Introducing Tex-Mex Breakfast Muffins!
This quick breakfast idea is fast, furious and full of flavor.
So much so, it’s hard to believe each cup takes less than 5 minutes to make. While the kids are rushing to get their shoes on and pack their backpacks, I simply whisk up this creamy egg mixture, pour it over an english muffin half and pop in the microwave.
Yes, you read that right.
For these quick breakfast muffins, I stuffed english muffin halves down into microwave-safe cups, whisked eggs with silky yogurt and pico de gallo, and poured it in the cups.
Then I topped each cup with cooked chorizo and shredded cheese, and ZAP! In two minutes or less, you have fluffy, cheesy, slightly-spicy pillows of goodness you can take on-the-go. The yogurt provides moisture so the eggs don’t toughen up in the microwave.
These little beauties are almost too good to be true… almost.
So chuck the toast tomorrow morning, and try our speedy Tex-Mex Breakfast Muffins instead.
You’ll be glad you did.
