Quest Huevos Rancheros Bites
It’s time to elevate your chip snacking game to borderline meal-territory. I wanted to create a loaded chip recipe with the Quest Chili Lime Tortilla chips, but didn’t want to go the bruschetta route, because I thought the flavors would most likely be conflicting. Instead, I decided to center the recipe around Huevos Rancheros, because I knew I could pack some extra protein in there with egg whites, as well as introduce some of the best toppings, like salsa, avocado, red onion, and queso.
Huevos rancheros is typically made with whole eggs as opposed to egg whites. Feel free to make that swap if that appeals to you. Two eggs should suffice as a replacement. For the purpose of this recipe, I wanted to keep it low fat, while keeping it high in protein, but if you want to make this more authentic, go for it! It won’t impact the integrity of the recipe. There’s no sacrifice in taste because the chips themselves are packed with flavor, so realistically you won’t notice the difference between egg whites and actual eggs.
Although it is listed as “1 serving”, it is very shareable. However, if you’re someone who enjoys high-volume meals, it’s a great option to try for just yourself too. The amount of protein alone will leave you satiated, but more importantly, the toppings provide a healthy balance of fats and carbs. I will say for what you’re getting, the carbs are pretty low. This is a great recipe if you struggle to hit your protein, and find at the end of your day you only have a small amount of carbs to work with.
- 1 Bag Of Quest Chili Lime Tortilla Style Protein Chips
- 80g Liquid Egg Whites
- Mango Medium Salsa (I Used Tostitos)
- 25g Diced Avocado
- 5g Red Onion
- 4 Jalapeno Slices (From A Jar) Diced Into Quarters
- 1 Tbsp Salsa Con Queso (Also Used Tostitos)
- Open bag of quest chips and remove all chips that are almost fully intact. Set the crumbled and/or very broken chips to the side (there may be quiet a few, so just aim for around 15 chips, set onto plate).
- Dice red onion, avocado, and jalapeno slices. Set aside.
- Pre-measure salsa, and queso in two separate bowls. You’ll want everything ready for assembly, so that the egg whites don’t get cold.
- Spray small pan and put on stovetop on medium heat. Measure out 80g of liquid egg whites in a small bowl with salt, pepper, & chili powder. Once pan is hot enough, cook egg whites to desired consistency.
- Now it’s time to assemble. First, put a small amount of egg whites on each chip (there were 15 chips, so you can simply put around 5g of egg white per chip. If you have more chips that are intact, you can lower the amount you put on each chip, or simply cook more egg whites). This will be your base for the other toppings.
- Next, add the salsa, followed by the diced avocado, then the red onions, and lastly the jalapeno’s.
- Heat up the queso in the microwave for 20 seconds, and using a spoon, drizzle on top of each chip.
- The toppings made/prepped were dependant on the amount of chips that were still intact in the bag. The macros include the entire bag of chips, however about 16g of the bag were not usable for the actual recipe. If you want to omit that from the recipe, you can simply measure the amount you didn’t use, and save it for a different time. I’d recommend using it as a crouton-type topping in a salad, or simply snack on them after cooking, and leave the macros as is. Every bag will differ, (some may have more unbroken chips than others) so you may have to adjust the number of toppings you have. I found that there was more than enough with what I prepped.
