Egg Muffins

I saw a version of these on Pinterest, and thought it looked like a good breakfast on the go.

4 eggs
6 egg whites
2 cups spinach (chopped in food processor)
1 can mushrooms (chopped in food processor)

Mix together, blending eggs.  Pour into well-greased muffin tin.  Makes 12 muffins.

Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes or until eggs are set.  Can be refrigerated and reheated for a quick breakfast.  By my calculations, they have 40 calories per muffin.

Taco Soup

From my friend Jenny

Taco Soup
1 can black beans
1 can red beans
1 can Rotel
1 can water
1+ pound boneless skinless chicken
1 bag frozen corn
1/2 packet Williams Chili Seasoning (No Salt Added)
1 packet Ranch dressing mix

Toss it all in the crock pot on low.  8 hours later, shred the chicken and add it back to the pot.  Serve over rice or with crushed tortilla chips.

This will make about 3 quarts.  To the best of my mathematical ability, I believe each cup is approximately 169 calories, 1.3 grams fat, and 8.9 grams of protein.
