Southwestern Bites

Vegetarian but still oodles of protein (cheese, eggs, beans.) I served these bites with a bowl of my Black Bean Soup. Which isn't entirely vegetarian (chicken broth) but could be (use veggie stock instead.)

Shelly's Southwestern Bites

1/2 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Green Onions, diced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1/4 cup Corn, drained (I used canned Mexi-Corn)
1/4 cup Black Beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup Jalapeno Jack Cheese, shredded
1 Tablespoon fresh Cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup diced Tomatoes, drained (I used S&W canned)
5 Eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper

Saute onions till golden. Add garlic and saute 1 minute more. Add corn and beans and turn off heat. Set aside to cool.


Mix all ingredients together. Be sure veggies have cooled slightly before adding eggs.


Spoon into lightly greased mini muffin tins. Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Makes 24.


These would be a great alternative for corn bread with a bowl of chili.

Looking for a different taste use the Eggface Search Engine under my before and after picture <--- Keyword: Bites and the other 45 versions I've made of these little suckers will come up LOL well not quite 45 but close ;)
