Southwestern Omelet Recipe

Flavors of another region spark the eggs in this recipe from Patricia Collins of Imbler, Oregon. "Hearty home-style food is popular in our small farming and timber community," she writes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced

  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2. Sprinkle with the onion mixture, bacon, tomato, avocado and 1/2 cup cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 3. Fold omelet in half over filling. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes or until eggs are set. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Serve with salsa if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
