How to Make a Mexican Omelet

One of the most popular omelets is the Mexican omelet. It's not hard to learn how to make a Mexican omelet-just add a few spicy and bold peppers, a little guacamole and a dash of salsa.

While not all Mexican food has a hot pepper kick to it, much of it does. When most people think of Mexican omelets, they think of a spicy omelet. But when making the omelet for your own meals, add or reduce ingredients according to your own taste buds.

Mexican Omelet
Ingredients You Will Need:
2 eggs
¼ cup milk
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 tablespoon fresh diced green chili pepper
1 tablespoon fresh, diced sweet red pepper
½ tablespoon minced garlic
3 chopped scallions (reserve one scallion for garnish)
½ cup salsa
½ cup ground guacamole

Beat the eggs together with the milk, and add the salt and pepper. Mix well, and pour into a non-stick skillet that has been seasoned with butter or olive oil. Cook over medium heat until the edges begin to set. Sprinkle the chili peppers, red peppers, garlic and scallions evenly over the egg mixture.

Frequently lift the edge of the omelet, and allow some of the unset egg to slide beneath and cook. Once the omelet appears to be cooked, tip the pan and, with a flip of the wrist, flip the omelet over. At this point, if you plan on adding other ingredients to the omelet, add them on one half of the omelet, and then flip it over onto itself. Serve with salsa and guacamole. Garnish with the remaining scallion.
