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.
Next, grab a baking dish and spray it with nonstick spray. Then set it aside.
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!

These sound awesome! How do you get 2 points each? Everything is free except the corn tortilla – the ones I buy are 1 point each? Thanks!
You are right Sue…if you use the thin tortillas they would be 1 point each…in recipe builder I just used a regular corn tortilla that is 2 points to be on the safe side since not everyone will get the extra thin ones!
Jamie, that makes sense – I was thinking clearly! I live on corn tortillas, tacos of every kind. Can’t wait to try these and try freezing them to grab in the morning. Thanks’ for responding so quickly!
ONE more time I was NOT thinking clearly – yeesh, I need to slow down. Am always in a rush – hence the need for quick breakfast!
Do they keep well in the fridge?
I think so..not quite as good as fresh though!
Do these freeze well?
I haven’t tried freezing them…they never last long enough, LOL. If you try it let us know how it goes!
Hi, could I add turkey bacon to these?
Yes I think that would work just fine!
My tortillas always fall apart when I make these. Any hints on keeping them together?
Corn tortillas are so finicky!! Make sure they are warm and fresh. I have found if I have had the tortillas in my pantry very long they will crumble easier.
