Fajita Frittata

(4 servings)

  • 4 large eggs - beaten with 3 Tablespoons of milk and a dash of salt
  • 1/2 cup green pepper - thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup onion - thinly sliced
  • 1 small tomato - diced
  • 1 additional small tomato - sliced
  • 4 Tablespoons shredded Jack or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter or cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
In a medium (10-inch) OVENPROFF skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add peppers, onions, chili powder and cumin. Cook until pepper is soft and onion is translucent - stiring occasionally - about 3 to 4 minutes. Add chopped tomato and continue cooking one minute.

Preheat oven to broil setting.

Reduce heat to medium and pour egg mixture over the vegetables. Cook until eggs are nearly set - about 6 to 8 minutes.

Top with tomato slices. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Carefully place skillet in oven and broil on top shelf until cheese is melted and eggs are completely set - about 2 minutes.

Cut into wedges. Serve with tortillas and salsa.

The chili powder and cumen add a smokey kick. A great Tex-Mex breakfast that's fairly easy to prepare.
