The truth is that I made these Cheesy Jalapeno Omelets for the first time in June. It was was when the jalapeno plants in the garden started exploding with peppers all over each plant. And then after I tasted it for the first time I knew I had to share the recipe with you guys. Now it’s November and the recipe is finally here. What has taken me so long? Well I’ve just been eating these Cheesy Jalapeno Omelets nonstop!
What do you have for breakfast, is it usually a quick meal or do you like to sit down with it? I don’t really like meal rushing, so usually I sit down for every meal. Breakfast ranges from toast and a banana to something more savory, like scrambled eggs or a omelet. On weekends it tends to get sweet with homemade pancakes and waffles. Right now I’m all about pumpkin pancakes, YUM. But back to this omelet.
The basis of this recipe is my favorite scrambled eggs recipe. Not to brag, but they kinda have been declared the best scrambled eggs by many eaters, so yeah. It’s a good start. This recipe for eggs has been with me for a long time and I pretty much stick with it as it’s my favorite. Throw in some cheese and chopped up jalapenos, fold the eggs instead of scrambling and the Cheesy Jalapeno Omelet is born.
First, you’ll need one jalapeno to make 2 omelets. Then you want to chop it up. Here’s some jalapenos that are still growing, even though it was October! We have a big bag of them in the kitchen. Jalapenos also freeze great if you want to throw them in the freezer to make them last longer.
- 6 eggs
- 6 teaspoons of milk
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 jalapeno - seeded and chopped
- 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- Crack eggs open and add them, milk, salt and jalapenos to a bowl. Beat eggs with fork to mix everything together.
- Take 1/2 of the butter and put on a medium high skillet.

- Continue to cook for 1-2 more minutes until sides are crispy.
- Remove from heat and serve.
- Continue making the next one by repeating the exact instructions above.
- This makes 2 omelets.
