Frittatas are insanely easy dishes to make! They make multiple servings and reheat well (within three days) which makes them great for meal prep. Add in the fact that you can basically throw in any ingredients you want and you have a formula for a meal that I plan on making over and over. This southwest breakfast frittata is delicious and so full of flavor. It’s healthy, low carb and Whole30 compliant so it’s great for a quick and healthy breakfast option for the whole family.
I used my 12 inch cast iron skillet from Lodge (which I LOVE) and it was the perfect size. You could also throw this in a baking pan and make it as a casserole and call it a day. Either way you slice it (literally and figuratively), it’s a healthy & delicious meal. Frittatas are also a sneaky way to add some extra veggies to your day. This southwest breakfast frittata is made with bell pepper sand onions but you can throw in any extra veggies you have on hand.
Whole30 Frittata Ingredients
To make this frittata you will need the following:
- Ground beef (I used 96/4 to keep things on the leaner side)
- Bell peppers – choose your favorite colors!
- Diced green chilis
- Some basic seasonings – taco seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder
- avocado oil and/or avocado oil spray
What gives this recipe a southwest feel is the mixture of peppers and ground beef. This recipe is pretty mild so if you are into spice like I am, feel free to add some chili powder or more taco seasoning to suit your needs.
How to make this Low Carb Frittata
Tp get this recipe started you will want to make sure your veggies are chopped and ready to go. The peppers and onions will get heated in your cast iron skillet first before throwing in your ground beef and seasonings. Once your beef and veggies are cooked, you are ready to add in your whisked eggs. Make sure the bottom of your cast iron skillet is lightly coated with the oil and that you also spray the sides so before adding in the eggs to avoid sticking.
Once your eggs are whisked together and added to the skillet, your frittata will bake in the oven until the eggs are set. Once it’s cooled a bit you can cut into slices and add your favorite garnishes or toppings. I love adding hot sauce and avocado to mine. This southwest breakfast frittata is also so delicious with a little sour cream if you tolerate dairy!
