A Quesadilla For Breakfast?

heck yeah! This chipotle egg quesadilla is the perfect way to start your day. It’s packed with protein and flavor, and it will keep you full until lunchtime. Plus, it’s so easy to make. Just follow the simple instructions below and you’ll have a delicious breakfast quesadilla in no time.

What Is Chipotle Sauce?

Chipotle sauce is a type of chili pepper sauce that is made from smoked and dried jalapeño peppers. It has a smoky, spicy flavor that goes great on just about anything. You can usually find different variations of this sauce in most grocery stores. If you can’t find chipotle sauce at your local grocery store, you can easily make it at home.

What Tortilla Should I Use?

For this recipe, we are using a carb smart tortilla because they only have about 70 calories each. However, you can use any type of tortilla that you like. Flour tortillas work best for this recipe but if you’re feeling adventurous you could try corn tortillas. If you want a larger quesadilla, you may want to use a burrito size tortilla.

What Cheese Works Best?

We like to use Mexican or cheddar cheese in our quesadillas because they compliment the sauce nicely, but you can really use any type of cheese that you like. If you want a little extra flavor or spice, try using pepper jack or jalapeño Jack cheese.

Are Eggs Good In Quesadillas?

Eggs are a great addition to quesadillas because they add protein and help to bind the ingredients together. If you have ever had a breakfast burrito with eggs, then you know how good they are together.

Dress It up.

If you’re looking for a way to dress up your quesadilla, try adding some sauteed veggies or grilled chicken. You can also top it with avocado or sour cream. Get creative and make it your own!

Tools You Will Need:

Directions

  1. Mix sour cream and chipotle together in mixing bowl until combined.
  2. Mix egg and egg white together in other mixing bowl until combined.
  3. Preheat pan on the stove to medium heat.
  4. Add egg to the pan and evenly distribute across pan, place tortilla on top of egg while it cooks.
  5. Cook for 1-3 minutes or until the egg is cooked.
  6. Flip the egg and tortilla over in one motion so that the tortilla is now on the pan and the egg is facing up. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  7. Spread your chipotle sauce over the egg and sprinkle cheese on top of sauce.
  8. Fold the tortilla in half once and then fold in again. Brown both sides of the tortilla serve.

Notes

  • When spreading your sauce, don’t go all the way to the edges as it will push itself out of the quesadilla as you fold it.
