This frittata recipe is delicious and easy to put together for breakfast. It's a healthy breakfast option the whole family will love!


  • 1 lb ground beef (I used 96% lean)
  • 10 eggs
  • 3 medium bell peppers, diced (I used green red and orange)
  • 1 4 oz can diced green chilis
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 2 tbs unsweetened nut milk (or you can use full fat canned coconut milk for more creaminess)
  • 2 tbs taco seasoning (I like Primal Palate)
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (I like Primal Kitchen Foods - code "Beauty10" gets your a discount on their website!)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • avocado for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Add avocado oil to a cast iron skillet warmed on medium heat. While this is heating, crack eggs in to a mixing bowl and add onion powder, garlic powder, almond milk and salt and pepper. Whisk together.
  3. Add onion and diced bell peppers, sautéing until veggies begin to just soften (about 3-4 minutes)
  4. Add ground beef and taco seasoning to pan and cook until no longer brown, breaking into crumbles. (IK love using my chop n stir for this!)
  5. Remove skillet from heat and mix in canned green chilis. Spray the sides of the skillet with avocado oil spray. Add in your whisked eggs and use a fork to distribute evenly through the pan
  6. Place skillet in the oven and bake for 14-17 minutes until eggs are set (check eggs using a fork. It may look slightly runny but if the fork comes out clean you should be good to go)
  7. Slice into 6 or 8 servings and garnish with avocado and jalapeño slices!
