An open faced Mexican omelet. This looks so nice in the pan that I set the pan on the table and serve from the pan. And yes the cheese and sauce can make serving a little tricky.
- 2 cups Egg Beaters egg substitute
- 8 3⁄4 ounces corn, drained
- 4 1⁄2 ounces green chilies, chopped
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 4 green onions, sliced, whites and greens kept separated
- 2 teaspoons garlic, chopped
- 10 ounces red enchilada sauce
- 2 ounces baked corn tortilla chips, broken up (we use salt free)
- 7 ounces 2% mexican cheese blend
- Mix eggbeaters, corn and chiles in a large bowl till well blended.
- Heat oil in a 11 inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add white part of green onions and garlic, cook stirring for 3 to 4 minutes until green onions are soft.

This was really a great breakfast! I've never put hot sauce on my eggs, so this was a new experience for me. I'm happy to say that I had no trouble getting the omelet out of the pan, it slid right out onto a serving plate, and was just beautiful. The addition of the corn and chiles was very welcome- I rarely get vegetables with my breakfast, and this was a nice change. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers
While I love spicy food, I'll admit it's not something I usually enjoy for breakfast. However, this is an exception. It is really good! I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't make mine into an omelet, however, I just scrambled my eggs. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. Made for ZWT 7 for the Vivacious Violets team.
Great recipe and so easy to make! Very filling and flavorful. I used regular enchilada sauce this time but will use hot next time. Served for dinner and enjoyed a great hearty meal - thanks for sharing the recipe!
