Chicken Fajita Omelet


One of my all-time favorite egg dishes is chicken fajita omelet; I almost always order this when we go out for breakfast.  In my pre-Red single-life days, I found myself making breakfast dishes over and over again for dinners–because they are delicious, and never fail me. I have never thought of making this at home, until recently I had a couple of cups of leftover cooked chicken to use up and I wanted to try something different. I decided to try making this at home and was surprised at how easy, and delicious this is. Omelet takes a little bit more time to prepare, than let’s say scrambled eggs, so this recipe may not be super ideal when entertaining a large crowd. What I have done in the past is make a giant omelet (in a 12-inch pan or larger), roll it, and then serve it sliced. Each guest can have 2-3 slices each, and than you add breakfast potatoes or other delicious baked goods. In the future, I may also try adding pickled jalapeno or fresh one for a little bit more of a kick. Try this, it adds a little spice to your breakfast!

1/4 cup chopped yellow or white onions
1/4 chopped green bell peppers

1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
A handful of sliced green onions
Sour cream, salsa, or guacamole (Optional, for serving)

Saute onions and green peppers. Add diced, grilled chicken breast.
Sprinkle with taco seasoning, blend well. Transfer to a small bowl, set aside.
Pour the beaten eggs onto a hot oiled pan. Let it set for a few minutes.
Add the omelet filling (from the bowl), sprinkle with green onion &; cheese, then fold.
Let it sit for another 1-2 minutes until it’s browned.
Remove from heat.
Serve with sour cream, salsa, or guacamole.

Yield: 2 servings (can be cooked in one big 8-inch pan, or made into two smaller personal size using 4-5 inch pan)
