This omelet, stuffed with cheese, olives and sour cream and topped with zippy taco sauce, is easy to prepare. It makes a wonderfully filling main dish that's great for breakfast, lunch or supper.—Pamela Immekus, Sullivan, Missouri
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.

I would really like the recipe for the picture you call an omelet. This ain't no omelet.

The picture doesn't look much like an omelete to me. Am I wrong?
