Cilantro, Red Onion and Jalapeno Omelet

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Crafty Lady 13

Red onions are sodium-, fat-, and cholesterol-free and provide dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and potassium. This a a variation on an Indian omelet. You can omit the jalapeno if you do not like the heat and substitute a finely diced green bell pepper. Bacon, ham, or any of your favorite ingredients coud be added to suit your taste. I found this recipe in an AARP email and haven't had a chance to try it yet, but it sounds delicious.

Hubby and I enjoyed this excellent omelet for lunch today. The amount of onion and jalapeno was just right for us. We love strong flavours, so I doubled the cilantro and also added two cloves of roasted garlic, a few tablespoons of crumbled blue cheese and a handful of cherry tomatoes from the garden. Delicious. Thanks so much for posting.
