Black beans and cheddar make for a southwestern-inspired hearty omelet filling, but feel free to vary this recipe by using kidney beans or Monterey Jack cheese instead.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine beans, onions, cheese, and salsa in a medium bowl.

Step 2

Heat a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Pour egg mixture into pan; let egg mixture set slightly. Tilt pan and carefully lift edges of omelet with a spatula; allow uncooked portion to flow underneath cooked portion. Cook 3 minutes; flip omelet. Spoon bean mixture onto half of omelet. Carefully loosen omelet with a spatula; fold in half. Cook 1 minute or until cheese melts. Slide omelet onto a plate; cut in half.

Had to scale this down to serve just myself. Really hard to make an omelet with one egg (didn't use the whites); turned into scrambled eggs. Was actually excellent. Used homemade salsa which went really well with the egg and beans. Will definitely have this again in the future. A filling and healthy breakfast.

I did eggs with yolk instead of just egg whites. Black beans go so good in an omelet. So so good. They have tons of great coupons over at http://printablecouponsanddeals.com/ Its updated constantly and you never know when a coupon will pop up that could be used in this recipe or others!

So healthy and filling. I omitted the cilantro and subbed red onion for the green. Quick, easy, and delicious!

This is an easy quick omelet to make. I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to my guests. I used egg substitute or the egg whites. I warmed up the black beans before putting them into the omlet. I also used Harry & Davids black bean and corn salsa. yummy!!

This is a nice recipe when you want to get low fat protein into your breakfast. It wasn't extraordinary; but still alright.

Loved the black beans, cheddar, and salsa filling - so savory - but wasn't a fan of the green onion since it only cooks but a minute. Great idea to stir the chopped cilantro directly into the egg mixture. Served with cheddar quesadillas for dinner.

Tasted good, but you really should emphasize better that this recipe is TWO servings. Not "Slide omelet onto a plate; cut in half." That makes it sound like one serving (one plate????)
