Wake up your taste buds with the yummy flavors of warm refried beans, salsa and shredded cheese. Whip up this satisfying hot breakfast in 15 minutes flat. Spice it up with a hot salsa, or add sizzling cooked bacon for a smoky twist. —Teresa Gunnell, Lovettsville, Virginia

"It was a nice variation on the omelet theme. We didn't add the water to the eggs, as I can't ever follow a recipe, but they were delicious. My husband said we could have them again. My 3 year old son appreciated the black olives that I added to his."
