I currently have a total obsession with eggs. I enjoy them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They are often quick to prepare, versatile and lets not forget, nutrient dense.

Baked eggs have become quite a trend so I thought I would develop my own recipe based on my favourite flavours, which of course includes Mexican spices!

I used ramekins that hold approximately 1 cup of filling to make individual serves, however you can use a large oven proof dish to make this recipe.

In regards to serving size, 1 ramekin served with a slice of sour dough or crusty grain bread (topped with avocado and lemon of course) would make a nice light meal or have 2 ramekins for a larger meal.


1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 large red capsicum, diced

1 large red onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, crushed or finely chopped

1 long red chilli or 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes

1 cup (or 170g) of cherry tomatoes, halved

I cob of fresh corn, kernals removed from the cob

400g can of kidney beans (or black beans)

400g can of diced tomatoes

1 teaspoon of paprika

2 teaspoons of cumin

2 teaspoons of ground coriander

An egg for each ramekin - this amount of mixture makes about 5 ramekins worth for me, therefore I use 5 eggs. If you serve this in a large oven proof dish use 5-6 eggs

Fresh coriander, chopped, to serve


Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Heat oil in a large skillet over a low-medium heat.

Add the capsicum, onion, garlic and chilli and sauté, stirring occasionally, for approximately 2-3 minutes.

Add fresh cherry tomatoes and corn kernels and stir through for approximately 1-2 minutes.

Add tinned tomatoes, kidney beans, paprika, cumin and ground coriander and stir through then remove from heat.

Fill the ramekins or small oven proof bowls with mixture.

Make a small well in the middle of the mixture and crack an egg in each ramekin.

Cook in the oven for approximately 20 minutes.

Once cooked scatter with chopped coriander.
