  • 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 large red pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk (any kind)
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese
  • optional: 1/4 cup fresh cilantro


  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.
  3. Transfer browned meat into muffin cups. Then prep vegetables by finely dicing green pepper, red pepper, and onion. Evenly spread out among muffin cups.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Then, pour egg mixture evenly on top of veggies in order to fill each cup around 3/4 of the way full. Use a fork or knife to mix in order to make sure the veggies are evenly distributed within the egg.
  5. Season the top of each egg cup with salt and pepper, to taste, and then sprinkle on cheese.
  6. Bake at 350°F for around 18-22 minutes.
