  • Yield: 1 Serving
  • Cuisine: American
  • Course: Breakfast


2 large eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/3 cup Colby-Jack cheese blend, shredded

2 tablespoons prepared salsa

4 slices avocado

1 (8-inch) flour tortilla

Sour cream, optional


  1. Whisk together the eggs, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Melt the butter in a  8.5-inch skillet over medium heat. After the butter foams add the egg and cook, shaking the pan until the egg starts to set, 30-45 seconds. Let the egg cook until nearly set, about 1-1 1/2 minutes. Top with the cheese, then spoon the salsa down the center of the omelet and top with the avocado slices. Cover the pan and cook until cheese melts, about 45 seconds.
  3. Place the tortilla on a plate. Slide the omelet onto the center of the tortilla. Roll up the tortilla and serve with sour cream if desired.
