Southwestern Baked Egg Cups

Total time
Serves: 12 egg cups
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup chopped avocado
  • ¼ cup black beans
  • ⅓ cup salsa verde (or any type of salsa)
  • 3 tbs feta cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup chopped tomato
  • cilantro
  • Sour Cream (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels. Place in the microwave for 1 minute until they are soft, warm, and pliable. Do this step in 2 batches. 6 tortillas per round.
  2. Spray a 12 serving muffin tin with cooking spray. Place the tortillas into the cups of the muffin tin. Do your best to form the tortillas into the shape of the cup by pressing them firmly against the sides. It’s ok if some flaps are falling in towards the middle. A small opening is all you need.
  3. Place the tortillas into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, until crispy and slightly golden brown. Cooking times may vary. At about 10 minutes in, check in on them. If they're still a bit soft, keep them in for 1-3 more minutes. Take out of the oven and set aside.
  4. While the tortillas are in the oven, mix the chili powder, cumin, and salt in a small dish.
  5. Crack one egg into each tortilla cup. Sprinkle each egg with a couple pinches of the seasoning mixture.
  6. Place the egg-filled tortilla cups in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. The exact cooking time will vary based on how you like your eggs cooked. For a runny yolk, I’d check in at about 15 minutes to see if the whites are just cooked and the yolk is jiggly. If you’d like your eggs completely cooked through, cook for 20 minutes.
  7. Once the egg cups are done cooking, pile on an even amount of avocado, black beans, salsa, cheese, onion, tomato, and cilantro. Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired.
