Healthy spicy tacos for breakfast are here! This easy to make Taco Omelette recipe takes just a few minutes to prep with ingredients you probably already have and is packed with protein.
Start this one by taking out a large mixing bowl and a stovetop pan. If you don’t have a stovetop pan, here’s a link to the one that I’ve been using for years.
Add right into your mixing bowl 4 large whole eggs, 2 large egg whites, and 1/4 cup of unsweetened milk substitute or fat free milk.
Give those ingredients a quick mix with either a fork or whisk.
Why milk? Milk is going to help make your taco omelette a bit more fluffy!
Bring your stovetop pan over to your oven, turn your burner on medium heat, and coat your pan with some non-stick cooking spray.
Did you know that egg yolks are packed with healthy fats and good cholesterol?
Once your pan heats up, pour your egg mix in and let those cook on medium heat for around a minute.
Add in a little black pepper, 1/4 cup of chopped red onion, 1/4 cup of chopped green pepper, 1 ounce of crushed up tortilla chips, and 1/4 cup of some fat free cheddar or other cheese.
Diet tip? Add in some lean ground beef or turkey for even more protein!
You’ll know your omelette is ready to flip when you can shake your pan and the omelette moves with it, this will usually take a couple minutes.
Fold your taco omelette over and let cook it for a minute.
After a minute, flip it over on the other side and let that side cook another minute.
