  • plain fat-free Greek yogurt or organic low-fat sour cream
    1/4 cup
  • tomatillo sauce (commercially made (salsa verde))
    1/4 cup
  • Hass avocado (peeled and diced (about 1/2 cup))
  • white or black pepper (freshly ground, to taste)
    1/4 tsp
  • sea salt (or to taste)
    1/8 tsp
  • pepper Jack (shredded)
    3 tbsp
  • egg whites (large, or 1 cup 100% egg white substitute)
  • corn tortillas (5-inch)
  • small jalapeno pepper (minced, without seeds)
  • cilantro (fresh, chopped)
    1 tbsp


  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Lightly coat both sides of the corn tortillas with natural butter-flavored cooking spray and place on a baking sheet. Bake 4 minutes per side or until crisp and lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet.

  2. Meanwhile, place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg whites and scramble for 5 minutes or until done. Immediately stir in salt, pepper, and cheese.

  3. Place a scoop of cheesy egg whites on top of each crisp tortilla. Top each with avocado, tomatillo sauce, yogurt, jalapeno, and cilantro.

    Delicious I added black beans on the side, I ate this for breakfast and cooked enough for my husband who is also diabetic, I used low carb corn tortillas and sour cream. I've never had huevos rancheros because I don't like sunny side up eggs but this was amazing, I enjoy it so much more than I thought I would. The egg whites combined with the cheese made it so creamy.
