Mexican Breakfast Omelette's

I have a little catching up to do. Enjoy some breakfast!!

I had some left over taco meat that I used for breakfast omelette's. They remind me of something I use to eat locally. Mine was a lot less greasy. I used Colby jack cheese, my taco meat, jarred salsa, extra onions, eggs(of course), and topped it with salsa, avocado, and sour cream. Also, a few flour tortillas on the side.
Mine was a lot smaller than the monster my husband ate.

I began by reheating my taco meat on the stove.
When it was heated, I put it in a separate bowl and set it aside.

Next, I cooked up some red onion, about 1/4 cup chopped, in some salsa.
Only until the onion was slightly tender. Taste test of cut with a fork to see when they are cooked enough for you.

When my onion was done, I put it aside and began my omelet. I used 3 eggs for this monster.
First, scramble your desired about of eggs, I add a dash of milk to help my eggs get and stay fluffy.

In a frying pan, heated on medium-low heat, I used in my eggs. I leave them be and let cook until you can see that the bottom is fully cooked.
 Omelet making is hard to judge b/c you want to be able to flip half over to fold, without ruining the shape.
Before flipping, I added about 1/4 cup of my meat/onion mixture.
I also used up some left over breakfast potatoes from the morning before. Approx. 1/4 cup total for this omelet.
Some chopped tomato, and some shredded cheese. Then flipped the bad boy in half.

Let the omelet brown on both sides before removing it from pan.

After it was completely cooked, I plated it. Topped it with a little bit more cheese, large dollop of medium salsa, some sliced avocado, and a dollop of sour cream.

On the side of you want, use a few flour tortillas.

(I have tried my hand at homemade tortilla making. I have to admit it did not go well. So, when I need them, I BUY them from our local Mexican restaurant. Yeah I cheat so what. What??)

 Have a great Thursday! Happy Eating! -Kelly
