Cilantro, Red Onion and Jalapeno Omelet

Cilantro, Red Onion and Jalapeno Omelet created by Bonnie G 2

Red onions are sodium-, fat-, and cholesterol-free and provide dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and potassium. This a a variation on an Indian omelet. You can omit the jalapeno if you do not like the heat and substitute a finely diced green bell pepper. Bacon, ham, or any of your favorite ingredients coud be added to suit your taste. I found this recipe in an AARP email and haven't had a chance to try it yet, but it sounds delicious.

    I just made an account so I could write a review... it was great! I decided to make them for dinenr for my family tonight after work. I did change a few things due to lack of some ingredients... I used green onion instead of red onion because we have way too many and I stir-fryed the onion before I put it in the omelet- I am not much of a fan of uncooked onions. I didn't have any peppers so I used chopped spinach from my garden. Don't worry, it wasn't chopped when I picked it. :) I also used 3 eggs in the bowl and didn't split it into two (because it was just me eating then). Altogether, very good!

    Made this for breakfast today with only one small change, I added 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese to it and sauteed the veggies before adding the eggs. Fast, easy and wonderful mix of flavors. Next time I'll add some garlic too. A keeper for sure.

    Hubby and I enjoyed this excellent omelet for lunch today. The amount of onion and jalapeno was just right for us. We love strong flavours, so I doubled the cilantro and also added two cloves of roasted garlic, a few tablespoons of crumbled blue cheese and a handful of cherry tomatoes from the garden. Delicious. Thanks so much for posting.
