This is a very delicious Omelette that the Aztec use to make :) its probably the best omelette I ever had!


  1. In skillet, fry onion in bacon grease until tender, add diced hot dogs.
  2. Continue frying until browned.
  3. Add more bacon grease if needed.
  4. Tear up tortillas into bite size pieces and add to skillet.
  5. Continue frying until tortillas are pliable.
  6. Add more bacon grease if needed.
  7. Break eggs over entire mixture and stir everything together until eggs are fried.
  8. Note: Do not deviate from recipe. This is a delicacy that originated in the refrigerator, better known as left overs. Pay day was still a ways off.

Hey!!! I have fixed something close to this for my kids over the years, and yes, it does help get through in lean days waiting for payday. Depends on whats in the frig as to what the final result will be,the idea is the same and always well received. Disregard any negative comments you may receive, some people just don't have a sence of hummor. Thanks for sharning. Lee

Made this for DH and he loved it! His ancestors could have been 'Aztec', too. ;) I, too, remember the very loooong days between paydays. Thanks for the fun recipe, I mean, Chef! lol

The Aztec's did not have "HOTDOGS" nor did they have refrigerators, and I am quite sure that "payday" was never a week off!
