Taco Omelet

Having free-range chickens means a never-ending supply of eggs...as long as the cat doesn't get them!  ;-)  So, I like to make myself an omelet for breakfast, and sometimes lunch, nearly every day.  Having omelets so often gives me several chances to experiment and this Taco Omelet is definitely a favorite when we have some leftover taco meat!

Taco Omelet:
2 eggs
1 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp salsa
dash salt
dash pepper
dash garlic salt
handful of taco meat
handful of chopped green pepper
handful of chopped onion
1 slice American cheese

*Whisk eggs, milk, salsa, salt, pepper and garlic salt in small bowl until well blended.

*Poor egg mixture into omelet pan (small frying pan) and then add the rest of the ingredients to one side of the egg mixture.

*Allow to cook until the egg is mostly set-up then, with a spatula turn the half without the meat/cheese/veggies over onto the other half and allow to cook.

*Flip omelet over and cook until done.

(Something I haven't tried yet, is cooking the onion and green pepper together first...maybe in some butter!  I get too hungry and impatient to wait that much longer, but I'm sure it would taste awesome!)

HI, found your link over at Delicious Dish Tuesday. This sounds really good and a great idea for one of our Breakfast for Dinner Thursday meals.
I hope it is okay that I pin this post.
I would love if you could stop by and share at Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen.

A good way to use leftover Taco meat, hurrah!! I hate to throw it out and that's what we usually end up doing. Now I have something new to try. T/Y :)

YUM! Fresh eggs are SO much tastier too! Wish you lived closer, I'd pay you for some. ;)
