I’ve been making this egg recipe for years and when I realized it wasn’t on the blog it got moved to the top of my to do list! This is one of those recipes you just keep making because it’s SO easy and SO good.


  • Eggs
  • Milk, cream or sour cream (which ever you prefer)
  • Chopped green chilis
  • Roasted red peppers
  • Monterey Jack Cheese
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Salsa & sour cream for topping

With a lot of quiches or egg cups you have to cook onions or veggies on the stove before putting them into the recipe, this recipe doesn’t, which makes it so easy! You use pantry staples like chopped green chilis and roasted red peppers to get your flavor and veggies, and you won’t be disappointed.

How to make Egg Cups

Mexican egg cups are a great make ahead meal prep breakfast! This recipe couldn’t be simpler. You literally beat the eggs, mix in the ingredients, separate into muffin cups and bake. So easy!

For this and all muffin recipes I use my BonCook Flexipan muffin tray. It is literally life changing! You don’t flour, grease or spray it and NOTHING sticks to it. If you use a regular metal muffin tray for this recipe you need to make sure and spray or grease it well, eggs stick to metal easily.

How long will egg muffins last in the fridge?

You can make these 12 egg cups and keep them in the fridge for breakfast throughout the week. Make sure to store them in an airtight container and they’ll be good for up to 5 days. I reheat in the microwave for about 25 seconds.

Can you freeze egg cups?

Yes you can freeze these egg cups after baking them! If you want to prep a whole bunch of egg cups ahead of time you can absolutely freeze them! To thaw just place them in the fridge the night before and they should be good to heat in the morning.
