Marcie’s Spicey Jalepeno Avocado Chicken Sausage Crustless Quiche-frittata-thingy:
(That’s a mouthful of a title! But so fitting for a mouthful of such savory spicey goodness!! Hehe!!)

Ingredients and prep:
~8 organic large eggs
~1/2 c light sour cream or your substitute
~1/3 c Trader Joes Hatch Valley green salsa or medium can of fire roasted diced green chilies
~1/3 c chipotle salsa
~1 C cheese of choice or alternative
~3 links of Adeles Mango Jalepeno Chicken Sausage diced (or any sweet Italian chicken sausage with casings removed will do) (Adeles –>you do not need to remove casings)
~1 large sweet yellow onion finely chopped
~2 jalepenos (seeded- or not🔥😏) finely chopped
~2 medium avocados diced into small squares
~ 1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
~1/2 cup finely chopped green onions (set aside)
~1/2 tsp sea salt
~1 1/2 tsp granulated garlic powder
~1 TBS freshly and coarsley ground Tellicherry peppercorns (or your own ground pepper of choice)
~sweet Hungarian paprika for topping
~1 TBS EVOO (olive oil) for pan
~Non stick spray for baking dish

Process:
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees

-Spay a 9-inch pie shaped baking
dish or any shaped baking dish which measures around 9 inches.

-In medium pan sauté set over medium heat coated with 1 TBS EVOO sauté and cook diced yellow onion, jalepenos and chicken sausage – cooking until chicken sausages is cooked through. About 15 mins… Set aside. (Can be made in advance and kept in fridge overnight.) do not drain. The “juices” from your sautéed mixture add wonderful flavor to this dish 🙂 if you chill this overnight be sure to let it set to room temp or pop in micro for 30 sec or so for mixture to soften so it will mix well into your egg mixture. I prep all the work the night before.

In large mixing bowl mix eggs with sour cream, both salsas, cheese, avocado, cilantro and all spices except paprika. (Paprika is for the very end prior to baking.) Once everything is well mixed, add in and mix well the chicken sausage-onion-Jalepeno mixture. Pour into prepared baking dish. Top with diced green onions and lots of dashes of Hungarian paprika.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 mins- depending on your oven. Check at 30 mins and if need be place a layer of foil lightly over the top to prevent over browning. Continue baking until center is firm and set. My dish is usually done at 40 mins 🙂

Mix all dry ingredients, including remaining shredded coconut, all nuts and seeds, together in a large bowl.

Drizzle in honey and almond butter.

Mix together until almond butter is evenly distributed and well blended. Mixture will be slightly crumbly and clumpy. This is all good peeps 🙂

Add 1-3 TBS Coconut water until you can make a ball and it sticks together well.

Using a 1 inch cookie scoop, or your fingers, scoop out dough and roll into aprox 1-inch balls.

Roll protein balls into reserved shredded coconut.

Layer between sheets of wax paper in a container with a lid. Store in refrigerator.

EnJOYYYYYYY😋

PS: if u really wanna amp up the flavor (and indulgence ;)) you can add some EnJOY Life mini chocolate chips and some coconut extract. But it’s really not necessary … These are great as is and work as a great afternoon perk ;)👀

I make these very low on the sweetness scale. They aren’t overly sweet but still quite yummy… And energizing! Chia seeds add healthy fats and fiber too! Protein powder for longevity. Heart healthy nuts 🙂 Antioxidants and energy from raw cacao….lots of goodness in these little babies!! 😍
