This is a recipe I found on the cooksrecipes.com website, from their World Cuisine folder. It's different than the only other recipe on this site with the same title, so I thought I'd post it here for another option for anyone looking for a Tex-Mex breakfast idea.

Made for your 2014 Wk 17 Football Pool win, I halved this recipe to make 3 omelet-style servings for DH, his brother & I for a weekend brunch. Served w/salsa & a dollop of sour cream, they were super good & a trip down Dallas memory lane that we take often here. I used the opt bacon (prob more than stated by the recipe for the guys), but left out the green chilies. They are often hard to find here & I think of them more as a Southwest US (Santa Fe or Albuquerque) flavor vs Tex-Mex anyway. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. The guys were esp glad I lost the pool this wk. :-)
