Pretty breakfast taco cups filled with eggs, bacon, pinto beans, cheese and salsa.


  • 1 6" tortilla preferably low-carb
  • 1 strip of cooked bacon crumbled (I used vegetarian)
  • ½ teaspoon taco seasoning
  • ¼ cup pinto beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 egg or 1/3 cup egg substitute such as Egg Beaters
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro
  • taco sauce to taste
  • 1 tablespoon crumbly Mexican cheese such as Cacique Panela


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Heat a tortilla in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften. Fold it into a ramekin to form a cup.
  • Stir the taco seasoning into the pinto bean. Spoon about 1/3 cup of beans into the bottom of the tortilla.
  • Carefully break an egg on top or pour in the egg substitute, leaving about 1” at the top.
  • Add crumbled bacon and bake for 20 minutes, or until the egg is fully set.
  • Remove from oven and top with cheese, taco sauce and cilantro or any of your favorite taco toppings. Enjoy!
