Southwestern Chipotle Egg White Patty Tacos

Unapologetically just made the best healthy egg white breakfast tacos you will ever see. Yes, we said breakfast tacos! However, these simple, high-protein tacos would be great for lunch or dinner, too!

We lightened up this recipe by using our low-calorie egg white patties. Each patty contains only 35 calories, but a whopping 6g of protein. This makes the egg white patties a great way to add volume to your usual breakfast taco without a lot of calories.

The game-changer in this recipe is the southwestern chipotle seasoning that makes the egg white patties feel like an authentic Mexican ingredient. It’s kind of like adding taco seasoning to your ground beef when making traditional tacos, but much better!

You could opt to go with more traditional toppings like shredded cheese, tomato, and lettuce. But, we wanted to add a fresh burst of flavor with the cilantro-lime sour cream! The sour cream really takes these to a whole new level!

The fun never ends!

The best part is that the southwestern chipotle seasoning and the cilantro-lime sour cream make a lot of extra, so you can enjoy this recipe on repeat! If you are serving these for a big party, both ingredients should be plenty to go around!

Are you ready to get cooking and enjoy #TacoTuesday with us every day of the week?
