Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. ground turkey (any kind of ground meat will work)
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoons salt
  • 1 large green pepper, finely diced

  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk (any kind)
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 12-cup, nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil to a nonstick skillet and heat over medium/high heat. Add ground turkey and spices and saute until turkey is fully cooked.
