This post is a collaboration with Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. “on behalf of the Beef Checkoff. I received compensation, but all opinions are my own”. 30 Minute Mexican Frittata with Beef.

My love for a good frittata recipe runs deep. Frittatas are extremely versatile and can be served for any meal during the day. My brand-new Mexican Frittata serves the entire family in a nourishing and filling way because the main ingredient is 93/7 Ground Beef. It is also filled with creamy eggs, onions, tomatoes, green chilies and topped with avocado slices, tomatoes and drizzled with avocado ranch.

Mexican Frittata

As a momma who runs the household and kitchen, I have to be strong, both physically and mentally. I love adding beef to my recipes because the nutrients found in beef keep me feeling fueled and focused for hours. It is equally important that my husband and kids eat foods, such as beef, that will keep them full until the next meal and give them enough strength to get through their day in a positive way.

Mexican Frittata

I love the fact that this frittata recipe can be tailored in 3 different satisfying ways; adult, child and baby. Sometimes a big meal like this can be overwhelming for kids and toddlers. I love deconstructing recipes in a way that takes the stress away and allows my kids to approach it in an easy way. Additionally, fruit is a great side dish to add with this meal to keep it healthy and fresh.

Cooking a healthy meal sometimes means that you have to make 15 different options to please everyone. 4 years ago when I decided to change my lifestyle to Paleo, I made a rule that I would only cook one meal and everyone would either choose to eat it or figure out their own meal. Needless to say, my husband began to get on board and now enjoys every meal I create.

Mexican Frittata

In my kitchen, I love cooking and creating recipes with beef. As I mentioned earlier, that’s the main ingredient in my Mexican Frittata recipe. I love the fact that beef gives me, and my family the strength we need to be our best selves. In addition, I love the fact that beef has protein, iron and zinc that support healthy brain development and function now and for the future.

Can this Mexican Frittata be frozen?

Absolutely! I cut this Mexican Frittata into portion sized squares and put add to an air tight freezer container. I usually will make a big batch and heat up for an easy weekday breakfast for me and the family. They will last in the freezer for up to 3 months if stored correctly.

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
