I was in the mood for something spicy this morning (June 2013), so I decided to finally try this recipe from 'DixieChick' that was submitted way back in 2005. The user comments below are spot on. This is a great omelet. I did adjust it slightly to make a single serving. I used 2 eggs, 1/2 of a jalapeno and about 1/3 of single orange bell pepper. I particularly liked the flavor of the cilantro and the double dose of heat from the jalapeno and the Tabasco. Starting the day with a little fire wakes up the senses.

How To Make A Jalapeno Omelet

Melt butter in a large, heavy frying pan.

Add jalapeno peppers, green peppers, red peppers and onions and saute until onions become transparent. Season with salt, pepper, Tabasco and cilantro. Beat eggs with 1 Tablespoon of water and slowly pour throughout the sauteed mixture.

Simmer covered over low heat until the eggs are set. Add cheese to one side and carefully flip the other side over. Remove from heat and cover for an additional minute to melt the cheese completely.

Jalapeno Omelet Recipe

Fresh and spicy. If you want it mouth-burning hot, don't core the jalapeno. The seeds are the hottest part.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank DixieChick for this recipe.
