Southwest Omelet

April 01, 2021

When it comes to breakfast, most folks fall into two categories: savory and sweet. Those who favor sweet have their n’oatmeal and waffles, but for anyone on the savory side, the Southwest Omelet is the way to go.

Fluffy egg, rich cheese, gently charred roasted veggies, and crumbly meat come together in this Southwest Omelet for the perfect blend of flavor. A drizzle of Buffalo Sauce adds a medium-heat, creamy, peppery kick to the savory omelet that gives this classic egg dish its Southwest flair.
