Mexican muffins

I was looking for something on-line and came across interesting Mexican muffin recipe. When I read list of ingredients I was sure they going to be very tasty. I wasn't wrong. These muffins taste lake omelets for me and what is more important portable omelets. You don't need a plate and cutlery to eat one. I think they are great finger food.

Ingredients for 12 muffins:
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1/2 onion
  • 390g (1 can) red beans
  • 125 ml salsa
  • 3 large eggs
  • 250 ml egg whites
  • 60g grated cheese ( i had mozzarella and cheddar)
  • salt and pepper

Chop the onion into small chunks. Heat up the frying pan, add small amount of  oil and fry the onion. 
In a meantime dice the red pepper. When the onion is getting soft add the pepper and fry for a little bit longer. Remove from heat and set aside.
Drain the beans, rinse with water.
Put the beans into a big bowl, add salsa and fried vegetables.
Combine them together.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Prepare muffin tin. In case of those muffins I would recommend to use silicone moulds as it is easier to take the muffins out when they are ready. it would be good to slightly grease muffin moulds.
Into a big bowl or measuring jug put the eggs and egg whites, add some salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs. 

With a spoon divide the vegetables  evenly among all muffin moulds. Pour egg mixture to cover the vegetables. Sprinkle each top with grated cheese. 

Put the muffins into oven for 25-30 minutes. Before remove check with toothpick if baked in the middle. Take them out of muffin cases and let them cool down on a wire rack.
Enjoy !
