  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, egg whites, and taco seasoning until smooth.
  3. Gently stir in the avocado, Cheddar Jack cheese, and green chiles.
  4. Place the bell pepper halves with the skin side down on the baking sheet.
  5. Spoon the egg mixture into the bell pepper halves, filling them to just below the edges (the egg mixture will expand while baking).
  6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the egg mixture is just set. Remove from the oven. Let cool slightly, about 5 to 10 minutes, before serving.
