Directions

GETTING READY
1. Heat a pan. Put olive oil on it. Once hot add the onion, green and red bell peppers. Saute for a minute. Add the salsa and cilantro and mix well to combine. Turn off the heat and transfer them into a bowl.
2. In a bowl, break the eggs. Add taco seasoning, black pepper and milk. Whisk it well to combine. Set aside.

MAKING
3. In a pan on medium low, heat butter till it melts. Pour 1/2 of the egg mixture and let it cook. Make sure it does not stick to the edges of the pan by running a spatula around.
4. Once the eggs are done spread 1/2 of the filling on one side of the omelette. Sprinkle cheese generously on top.
5. Mark the center of the omelette and using a spatula slowly turn the free side of the omelette to cover the filling (like closing a book).
6. Let it cook for another 2 minutes or till the cheese melts. Turn off the heat.

SERVING
7. In a serving plate, serve the omelette with a doll up of sour cream.
