Vegetable Egg Cups

Now I don’t claim to be a chef because I’m far from it but these turned out mighty fine if I do say so myself.  I was pretty proud of myself haha.  These are great for breakfast or to put in the fridge when you need to grab a healthy, high protein snack on-the-go!  And they are great with salsa but it can get a bit messy so beware!
