It has eggs to provide a casserole-like texture and pump up the high-quality protein. And it’s got still more protein from red kidney beans and Monterey Jack cheese. Recipe + image courtesy of Jackie Newgent, RDN.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 4

  • 4 Free Range Egg
  • 1 tsp Lime Juice
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups Beans, Red Kidney
  • 2 cups Supersweet Yellow Corn (frozen)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 oz Tortilla Chips, Blue Corn
  • 0 g All No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup Chunky Salsa, Hot
  • 3 oz Colby And Monterrey Jack Shredded Cheese

DIRECTIONS

1 Whisk together the eggs, lime juice, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the beans, corn, and cilantro. Break the tortilla chips into small pieces and stir into the egg mixture.
2 Spritz four (2-cup capacity) freezer- and microwave-safe bowls with cooking spray. Transfer the mixture to the bowls. Top with the salsa (drained of excess liquid) and Monterey Jack cheese (or vegan cheese). Cover well and freeze.
3 To enjoy one bowl, uncover and top the bowl with unbleached parchment paper or paper towel. Microwave on HI for 2 minutes and stir well. Microwave until done, about 1 1/2 minutes more. Microwave times vary. (Hint: If desired, serve each garnished with additional fresh cilantro or a dollop of guacamole at the table.)
