HOW TO MAKE WEIGHT WATCHERS BAKED BREAKFAST TAQUITOS
This is a recipe you can double or triple and keep in the fridge all week long for a quick breakfast for the whole family! Taking these as a snack is also a good idea.
STEP ONE: SCRAMBLE THE EGGS
First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Go ahead and scramble your eggs if you haven't already done that.
STEP TWO: MAKE FILLING
Microwave the corn tortillas for 1 minute to soften them up.
Mix together the scrambled eggs and remaining ingredients to make the filling.
STEP THREE: FILL TORTILLAS
Spoon about a tablespoon of filling mixture onto the bottom edge of a heated corn tortilla.
Wrap the corn tortilla tightly upward around the filling.
Place the seam side down onto the prepared baking dish. Keep up this process with the remaining corn tortillas and filling until you get all the tortillas filled and rolled.
STEP FOUR: BAKE
Bake until taquitos are crisp. This usually takes about 12-15 minutes. Serve hot!
These are great served with salsa…which is zero points!
EASY RECIPE MODIFICATIONS
There are lots of easy modifications for these breakfast taquitos. I personally will leave out the onion and add more spinach or pepper. Using the diced jalapenos is a must for me because I like them spicy.
Be careful about adding cheese, sour cream, etc., because they will increase each taquito's points.
BAKED BREAKFAST TAQUITO SMARTPOINTS
It is important to grab the 6-inch corn tortillas…because the 8-inch is higher in points.
It is 2 Points per taquito on all 3 myWW plans. That isn't bad at all!! Dip this in some zero-points salsa; it is a great snack too.
On the current Weight Watchers Program (2023), it is 1 point per taquito. The serving size is one taquitos!
