Huevos y Frijoles

My lust for black beans is making me do crazy things with them. This morning I made a black bean omelet that made me salsa dance all over the kitchen. Try it:

1. Defrost a pack of your single serving vacuum sealed black beans. Add a little chopped jalapeno to your beans. Warm them in a little pot over medium heat.

2. Beat two eggs in a bowl with a splash of milk.

3. Chop up a little fresh cilantro.

4. Drop some butter in an omelet pan on medium heat. When it melts, pour in the egg mixture.

5. Cover the pan.

6. When the egg mass is no longer runny, spoon beans onto one half of omelet.

7. Sprinkle with cilantro and jack cheese.

8. Flip the other half of the omelet over the delicious bean mixture.

9. Wait for the cheese to melt.

10. Eat the heavenly omelet.

Can you think of a more delicious omelet? What's your favorite type of omelet?


  1. Looks very appeaing & tasty!! Yummie!

  2. That looks terrific! I'll try it!
    I love chili cheese omelets. I get it every time we go to the Hancock Hotel!!!

  3. Lucy LOVES black beans!! I make her black beans & eggs all the time. I call them "Dirty Eggs" :) As for my favorite omlette, I make myself a mushroom, spinach, parmesan cheese omlette with egg white whites a few times a week (it's very Weight Watchers friendly - only 2 points!).
