Breakfast Taquitos with Lime-Chipotle Dip

Recipe by Our Best Bites


  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups grated pepper jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted red bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 tsp hot sauce
  • 16 6″ flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray or olive oil

Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 cups  sour cream
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.  Spray with cooking spray or lightly brush with oil and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Crack eggs into large mixing bowl.  Whisk in 1/2 cup sour cream, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  When skillet is hot, add egg mixture to pan.  Using a rubber spatula, gently scrape bottom of pan and fold eggs over to scramble.  Remove from heat when slightly undercooked.  Add cheese, roasted red peppers, green onions, cilantro, and hot sauce to taste.  Gently fold to combine.

Warm tortillas in microwave to ease rolling process.  Working with a few tortillas at a time, place a scant 1/4 cup egg mixture into the center of each one and roll up into a cylinder.  Place rolled tortillas on prepared baking sheet, seam-side down, so they are not touching each other.  When all tortillas are rolled and filled, lightly spray tops with cooking spray, or lightly brush with olive oil.  Bake for 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown and crisp.

While taquitos are baking, coming 1 1/2 cups sour cream, lime juice, chipotle chili powder and kosher salt.  Stir to combine and store in fridge.  Remove taquitos from oven , let cool for 5 minutes, and then serve with dipping sauce.
