Black Bean + Jalapeno Frittata 🔥🔥🔥
What a TASTY combination for your weekend Frittata plans!
I LOVE spicy foods so I like to add lots of jalapeños, but you can add less jalapeño to keep things on the mild side.
Did you know that a lot of the heat from peppers is actually found in the seeds? So if you remove the jalapeño seeds then you’ll tame down the heat a good bit, leaving the flavor.
Eggs are our favorite choice to start the day. They are an affordable and high-quality protein source! I’m always looking for new ways to switch up our regular egg routine, and this recipe
ABSOLUTELY hits the spot! 🎯
Fast enough for a work-week morning if you have 20 minutes to make breakfast. Delicious enough for weekend brunch prepared for company!
And let’s not forget what a quick/awesome/perfect meal idea eggs are ANY TIME of the day! Wonderful for lunch or dinner too!
If you’d rather use egg whites, you can substitute 3-4 egg whites for each 1 whole large egg.
