I wasn't sure about the herbs in the omelette, but after tasting was pleasantly surprised. This omelette really had great flavours and the tomato salsa and sour cream really gave it a great finish. I thought that the omelette needed longer cooking time as the top wasn't fully set prior to flipping over, so left in the pan longer to cook. Serves 3 nicely. Good luck in the competition. Photo also being posted.

The omelet was not spicy as the title inferred. I only made half of this and was glad I did because it was very hard to fold as it was. I would have never been able to do it with 6 eggs. The taste was good and I enjoyed it even if it wasn't as pretty as it could have been. Good luck in the contest.

I really enjoyed the omelette, and thought there was an even amount of flavour. I thought the combination of zucchini and sour cream did cool down the spicyness of the omelette, even though the spices were not overwhelming.

It never occurred to me to add spices like cumin to an omelet, but it certainly is a great idea. I really enjoyed this recipe.

My usual omelette consists of spinach and mushrooms in egg whites so this omelet was a delicious change. The veggies were perfect but not too much. The method to making these is just like what I do (except for the water), so it must be good! LOL! The level of spice depends on the heat of your salsa and the freshness of the chill powder. I really enjoyed this with a bit of cheddar, a dollop of sour cream and of salsa on top. This is a terrific recipe so good luck in the contest. Thanks! :)

I scaled this down to 2 eggs and cooked a little less time. It was good, but I would saute the zucchini and onions next time to give even a little more flavor. Good with the salsa and sour cream. Thanks and good luck in the contest.

Great flavors in this omelet. I followed as written, but I would have preferred the onions and zucchini to be sauteed a little. I also think this would benefit from having a little ham and cheddar cheese added to the omelet. I really did like the spiciness of this dish. You don't really taste the zucchini in it which makes it a great dish for getting your veggies in. I had to cover the omelet during cooking to get the top to cook completely. Overall, a very good recipe. Good luck! :)

I reduced the omelet to serve 2. The recipe was well written with easy to follow directions. The only change I made was to sprinkle the toppings with a little bit of grated cheddar cheese prior to folding. It was topped off with Greek yogurt in stead of the sour cream. Good luck in the contest.

Wonderful Mexican flavors that are very satisfying. Was so glad I squeezed the zucchini as advised or it would have been too moist. Thought about adding cheese but decided to make as written and was glad I did as there was enough flavor we did not miss the cheese. Due to the flavor and how nicely this turned out you know I will be making this again. Thanks for the post and good luck with the contest.

Made and reviewed for DINING ON A DOLLAR. This was hard for me! Nothing much wrong, but the recipe seemed a bit contrived. Because this is a contest, I followed the recipe exactly. But I did feel as if the spices, onion and grated zucchini should first have been fried together, and then added to the beaten eggs. That might have been a great flavour infusion. We did not mind the veggies going in raw, but it did seem like an afterthought, rather than integrated with the omelet. I used a lovely spicy tomato salsa, which added a kick. Although I followed instruction #4 I could see the omelet was not going to cook successfully on top, and finished it under my oven grill. However, no photo, as I broke the omelet when after folding it and manoevring it out of the pan, sorry! Good luck with the contest!
