Inspired by a recipe in 500 Low Carb Recipes' cookbook. A perfect way to use up leftover taco (meat) filling from the previous night's meal-especially on one of those days you really don't want to cook. See my posted The Omelet by Alton Brown on how to prepare a basic omelet.

  3. Sprinkle the omelet with the cheese and garnish with your favorite toppings or the suggested toppings listed above.
  4. Cookgirl in no way advocates using this filling in crispy taco shells. What comes around goes around -- .
