Salsa Omelet

Salsa Omelet

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 2 Tablespoon of your favorite salsa
  • 1/4 grated Pepper Jack or Cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • butter for frying
This omelet is very convenient. If you use a decent salsa, you get a big flavor as if you put in a lot more effort. Instead of sauteing onions and stewing tomatoes, you just spoon a little salsa inside. Easy, breezy and delicious. I opted to use shredded Cheddar cheese in mine. I thought it was great breakfast.

How To Make A Salsa Omelet

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the eggs with the milk and a light sprinkling of salt and pepper. Beat until frothy.

Place a medium skillet over medium heat and melt the butter.

Pour egg mixture in the skillet. When the eggs are almost completely set, spoon salsa down one side of the omelet and sprinkle cheese over the salsa. Fold the the empty side of the omelet over the side with the ingredients. Turn off heat, cover skillet and allow omelet to set for 1 or 2 more minutes until cheese is melted.

Serve immediately with additional salsa on the top if desired.

Salsa Omelet

This makes one big South Western-tasting omelet. I like it best with warm tortillas so I can make little burritos as I'm eating. I'd love to hear what salsa people like best. I usually use chunky medium salsa from Pace.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.

I'm on a low carb diet and was desperately looking for easy egg ideas. This was perfect with Half and Half milk and it was very low carb and so delicious. I'll make this again tomorrow! : )

I enjoyed this recipe very much. I used a spicy salsa and a combination of Cheddar and Pepper Jack.

This is just a cheese omelet with salsa. It's also DELICIOUS! I love salsa. Sometimes I just have salsa on toast. Love the salsa.

Delicious. I've been spooning salsa over my omelets since I first found out salsa exists. Best condiment ever.

Dear Mr Breakfast - I am a huge fan of a sweet and spicy taste. To add sweet to this recipe when mixing eggs, I add a tablespoon of that liquid french vanilla coffee creamer instead of milk or mix half milk half creamer. I also use this trick with scrambled eggs. VERY GOOD. Your fan... Noah Kaufmann
