How to Make Tex Mex Egg Mug, Step-by-Steo
Step 1: Gather and prepare all ingredients.
Step 2: Spray a large microwavable mug with nonstick cooking spray. Pour in the liquid egg, onion powder, garlic powder and cumin. Mix together well using a fork.
Step 3: Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
Step 4: Add 2 tablespoons cheese, black beans and jalapeños or chopped green chiles (if using) and stir to combine.
Step 5: Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute, or until eggs are set. If additional time is needed, cook in small increments (15 or 30 seconds) until done.
Step 6: Top with remaining 1 tablespoons cheese, salsa and chopped cilantro (if desired). Enjoy!
Top with your favorite salsa or pico de Gallo. If eating breakfast in a mug isn't your thing, you can easily remove this to a small plate.
Get your ingredients together the night before for an even quicker morning breakfast. Mix together the eggs and spices and store in an airtight container. The beans and jalapeños or chiles can be stored together. In the morning, the only thing you'll need to do is cook and enjoy!
For a fun family weekend breakfast or brunch, gather the ingredients along with different salsas, beans and cheeses, and let everyone make their own!
