Pre-heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. It's hot enough when a drop of water dances on the surface. Meanwhile, saute two tablespoons of the vegetable mixture in the olive oil until the onion clarifies; set aside.
Spray the skillet with cooking oil spray, then pour the beaten egg into the skillet, covering the entire cooking surface. Add salt & pepper. For a change of pace instead of salt & pepper, add Mrs Dash's Mesquite Grilling Blend. Allow to set.
While the egg sets, cut three slices of cheese from the block (I prefer pepper jack or swiss), and lay it on the egg, right down the center of the pan. Place the veggie mixture on top. When the egg has set, the edges will curl up a bit. This will allow you to slip you spatula underneath without tearing the omelette.
Fold one side over the cheese and veggies, then the other. Allow to sit in the pan for a few more seconds to allow the veggies to become heated through, and the cheese to melt. Serve. Cover with salsa/ and or hot sauce if desired.
Feeds two normal appetites, or one hungry man.
I prefer block cheese, but grated cheese works equally well. Sauteed mushrooms goes well here too, but if you add mushrooms, reduce the amount of veggies.

I like the ideas of chopping up whole vegetables and storing the left overs. Make more sense that just chopping a couple tablespoons of this and that. I used fresh jalapeno. It was good.
