This southwestern omelet is not only very tasty, but easy to make in a matter of minutes.


Are you making this? 
2 medium Eggs
1 tbs water
0.125 teaspoon Sea salt
0.5 cup Mexican-style cheese
2 tablespoon Salsa
1 tablespoon Fresh cilantro; chopped

Original recipe makes 1



Heat an 8 inch saute pan to medium-low heat. Once the pan begins to heat up and you can feel heat when you put your hand just above the pan, spray pan with either vegetable or olive oil spray.

In a small bowl, crack both eggs and add the water and salt. Whisk vigorously until mixture becomes frothy. The better you whisk it, the more air you create in the mixture, which will give you a fluffier omelet. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. The next step will only take 2 to 3 minutes, so you need to watch your egg carefully and have all filling ingredients ready.

Watch the egg carefully and when it starts to set around the edges, take a rubber spatula (turned on its side) and slowly move the egg mixture from the sides of the pan toward the center. This will keep re-distributing the egg throughout the pan, so that all egg is cooked. After moving the egg from the edges of the pan toward the center, then start to take your spatula and lift the edges of the egg up while tilting the pan and letting any uncooked egg mixture slip underneath to allow that part to cook as well. Once you are close to all of the egg being cooked, you are ready to start adding your filling.

On only one half of the omelet, add the cheese, salsa and then cilantro. Then, take your spatula and lift the empty side of the omelet and flip it over the side with the filling. Use spatula to carefully slide your omelet onto a plate.
