You’re going to love our 5 minute Pepperjack Tacos! As a vegetarian, I’m constantly looking for ways to boost my protein intake after an intense weight training workout. These egg tacos were oh-so-tasty and only took 5 minutes in total to make.
As I said before, the beans and eggs are add a phenomenal amount of protein. The eggs in this not only provide plenty of protein, but they also provide healthy fats, selenium, vitamin D, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, zinc, iron, and copper. You can see why we love eggs so much!
Mix spinach, eggs, and onion in a bowl. Now you have two options: you can cook the egg mixture on the stovetop or in the microwave. Take your pick. If you choose to use the stovetop, start by adding a teaspoon of oil and scramble at low heat. Then melt the pepper jack on top of the mixture. If you choose to use the microwave, cook on high for one minute and then stir and add a slice of pepper jack.
Continue cooking for another minute until the eggs are done and the cheese is melted. Heat up the corn tortillas for about 3 minutes on a stovetop, steamer, or microwave. Spread the beans onto the tortillas, and then add the eggs. Top with a few chunks of avocado and olives, sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Enjoy!
