Tex-Mex Egg Bake

This tex-mex egg bake is easy to make and meal-prep, high-protein, and packed with fiber from vegetables and beans. You can roll this up in a tortilla with sour cream or guacamole to make an easy breakfast burrito, or just eat it on its own for a flavorful, low-carb breakfast.

This egg casserole really couldn't get any simpler but I have a few quick tips and tricks to make sure this comes out the best it can.

Let's talk about the recipe!


  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Ground cumin
  • Minced garlic
  • Feta crumbles

Make the Egg Base

Preheat oven to 350f. Grease a 9x13 casserole dish. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, pepper flakes, cumin, and garlic.

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but don't mix your ingredients in the casserole dish. I know, I know, more dishes suck. But you want to grease your dish and then mix everything separately before pouring it in, or everything is going to stick to the side of the dish instead of coming out clean.

And don't skimp on the spices! To make this egg bake taste tex-mex you need a good amount of spice, and you could use even more than I added in this recipe. It's hard to overdo it!

Mix in the Toppings

Add the feta, tomatoes, black beans, and corn and fold together gently. Pour into a greased baking dish and bake for 40 minutes.

Should you rinse your canned goods? Is it important for this recipe? Well, while it's not specific to this recipe, it's a good practice across the board. While you may not want to rinse in some instances (like keeping the tomato juice in when making sauces), most times, rinsing your canned goods greatly reduces sodium, and potentially reduces BPAs as they may leach into the food inside the can in small amounts. Research on BPAs is still pretty limited at the moment, but they do seem to be linked to some harmful side effects.

Once everything is rinsed, go ahead and pour it all in. The combination of black beans, corn, and tomatoes creates the perfect tex-mex flavor, and the feta adds a salty, cheesy kick!
