Black Bean Omelette

I had some leftover black beans after using part of the can to make Quesadillas so the following morning I decided to incorporate them into my omelette and it made a wonderful, filling breakfast.

BLACK BEAN OMELETTES

Ingredients:

Egg Beaters (or Eggs) - 1/2 cup (or 2 eggs)
Bell Peppers (Red and/or Green) - 1/4 cup, chopped
Green Chillies - 3, chopped
Onion - 1/4, chopped
Tomato - 1/4, chopped
Spinach - a handful, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

For Filling:

Canned black beans - 1/4 cup or to taste, drained
Salsa - about 1 tbsp (or a mixture of onions + tomatoes + g.chillies)
Cilantro - few, chopped
Cheese - 1 tbsp

Method:

1) Combine the ingredients for the omelette and pour into a non-stick pan, sprayed with some oil. Cook on low heat, covered until done on one side. Flip over and cook the other side, uncovered this time. When done, flip over once again.

2) Spread the filling ingredients on one half of the omelette and fold over. Press down lightly and cook for a few more minutes before gently sliding onto a serving plate. Serve with Ketchup, Salsa or a hot-chilli sauce.

  8. Hey CC.. My hubby makes mexican eggs called 'Migas'. This totally reminded me of that with the black beans addition. He doesn't put black beans, rather just adds salsa, green peppers, and onions with lots of cilantro and cheese. But I like this because it makes the omelette healthy and filling. Great creation, and thanks for the entry to WBB.

    Thanks Padmaja. If it were not for the leftover beans, I probably wouldn't have thought of it.

    Kanchana, migas sounds very flavorful! Will keep that in mind for next time. I've already sent you an email.. please let me know if you don't get it.

    Thank you Sirisha.

    TBC, that's a neat idea to add soy. Was it the TVP or tofu?
