    Karen From Colorado's Note:

    In Mexico, the word tortilla has two meanings. One is the more familar corn or flour flat bread, and the other means omelet. Serve this omelet with a stack of the former, warmed in the oven while the omelet cooks.

      We were looking for something a little different for Sunday breaky, this was quite good. Cut the recipe in half for the two of us and added some sweet green pepper, diced. Used the crushed red pepper flakes, but left all of the salt out, felt there was enough in the ham. Did everything else as the recipe said. Happened to have a couple of tomato/basil flavoured tortillas, so I wraped the omelet in them. We enjoyed it with some salsa spooned over it, served at the table. Thanks for posting.
