Courtesy of Chef Marcela


  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups (170 grams) tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup (packed, about 66 grams) grated cheese (Red Butte Hatch Chile and Pour Me A Slice are our favorites)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt (or more to taste)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spread a small amount olive oil around the insides of each well of a mini-muffin tin.
  2. Blend all the ingredients until smooth (at this point you can add bacon, jalapeños, herbs to make other flavors).
  3. Pour in the muffin tin- 3/4 of each tin hole.
  4. Bake at 400F for 15-20 min. Enjoy!
