1/2 starch, 1 vegetable, 1 lean meat, 1/2 fat
3 extra-large egg whites
2 extra-large eggs
1/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon pepper (freshly ground preferred)
1/16 teaspoon salt (a pinch)
1 teaspoon canola or corn oil and 2 teaspoons canola or corn oil, divided use
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 medium red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup grated zucchini
1/2 cup finely chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1 medium fresh jalapeño, seeds and ribs discarded, finely chopped
3 6-inch corn tortillas, cut into 1-inch strips
2 tablespoons salsa (lowest sodium available)
In a small bowl, using a fork, whisk together the egg whites, eggs, water, pepper, and salt. Set aside.
In a medium skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the red onion, bell pepper, carrot, and zucchini for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the tomatoes, green onions, and jalapeño. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a plate.
In the same skillet, still over medium-high heat, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the tortilla strips for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden, stirring constantly. Stir in the salsa. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in the egg mixture. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the eggs are set, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat.
Stir in the vegetable mixture.
Cooking Tip: To easily grate vegetables, use a box grater or the grater attachment on a food processor. You can also use a spiralizer or a peeler and then chop the zucchini into smaller pieces.
Keep it Healthy: Serve with a side of no-salt-added black beans.
Tip: If you don't have the vegetables listed on hand, swap in the same amount of others, such as sliced mushrooms, chopped asparagus, or leftover roasted potatoes or sweet potatoes.
