Crispy Baked Breakfast Taquitos with Lime Chipotle Dip

These are amazing. Make them right away!

That said, this recipe was taken from another food blog, our best bites.

I loved, loved, loved this meal. It can be breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It would be perfect as a brunch item as well. It's pretty quick to make, and has a lot of great ingredients. I've never put sour cream in eggs before, and they made the scrambled eggs very creamy. The addition of roasted red peppers and pepper jack cheese added another punch to make it delicious. You could stop right there and just have the scrambled eggs with those amazing add-ons, but to make it even better, you stick it in a tortilla and bake it until it's nice and crispy.

The lime chipotle dip is quite spicy, so just take a little bit to dunk your taquito into- enjoy!


2 teaspoons olive oil
12 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 cup grated pepper jack cheese
1/4 cup roasted red peppers
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1-2 teaspoon hot sauce
16 6-inch flour tortillas

1 1/2 cup sour cream
1 T fresh lime juice
1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

(Makes 16 taquitos)

1.) Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy clean up. Spray with oil

2.) Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Crack eggs and mix in 1/2 cup sour cream, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Add eggs to pan. Scramble eggs.

3.) Remove eggs from heat and add pepper jack cheese, roasted red peppers, green onions, cilantro, and hot sauce to taste.

4.) Fold together warm tortillas in microwave. Place about 1/4 cup egg mixture in each tortilla and roll into a cylinder. Place the rolled tortillas on a baking sheet, seam side down, not touching. Spray tops with cooking spray.

5.) Bake 15 minutes, or until edges are golden and crisp.

6.) While baking, combine 1 1/2 cups sour cream, lime juice, chipotle chili powder, and salt. Stir and store in fridge. Remove taquitos from oven, let cool, and serve with sauce.
