This super easy vegetarian taco filling is made with egg whites, mushrooms and spices to make it a more dinner style taco. Bonus: This meatless (Mexican) meal comes together in 10 minutes. Boom.
I usually eat egg whites for breakfast after a run. Ideally, a post-workout meal should have a good mix of protein and carbs. Each serving of AllWhites® 100% liquid egg whites contains 5 grams of protein, 0 grams of fat and 25 calories.
If you workout in the evening this is a healthy dinner packed with protein from the egg whites. I made this for dinner but had the leftovers for breakfast so it works either way. But for some reason I think of breakfast tacos as being on soft tortillas – anyone else?

I used this McCormick Mexican seasoning, but Taco Seasoning works too – just measure out the amount because some packets have more.

Mix 2 cups egg whites and taco seasoning in a bowl. Add to pan with onions and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook through.
