Amazing flavor!! I have always loved RO-TEL dip and decided it would be great over an omelette. I used sausage rather than ground beef for this recipe. It is spicy, but yummy! Serve with a side of fresh cubed melons, fresh fruit and a warm croissant. Use remaining sauce for dipping nacho chips :)

Ingredients

SPICY RO-TEL SAUCE

1/2 lb
breakfast sausage (regular) - crumbled and fried (use mild if you prefer)
10 oz
can of hot ro-tel with diced tomatoes with habaneros (undrained for spicy and drained for milder)
15 oz
can of white queso cheese sauce (or nacho cheese)

OMELET

3 large
eggs
2 tsp
milk
salt and black pepper to taste
1-2 Tbsp
oil
shredded mild cheddar cheese

EXTRAS

shredded mild cheddar cheese
chopped green onion
ground black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For Sauce: In a sauce pan, fry the sausage till done. Mix in RO-TEL and cheese sauce. Heat till sauce is melted and easy to pour. You can add a little water if it is too thick.
2
For Omelet: Beat with fork - eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Cooking over medium heat and using a nonstick 8" skillet, add oil then egg mixture and slightly toss till it begins to cook. Once it begins to solidify, press eggs down into skillet to evenly cover entire bottom of skillet. Let it cook a couple of minutes, untouched. When the top is still a little bit runny (it will continue to cook after folded onto plate), sprinkle some mild cheddar cheese down the middle. Now fold one side (1/3) over to the middle. Begin to slide the unfolded side onto serving plate as you also fold the folded side over again. Top with RO-TEL sauce, mild cheddar cheese, green onions and ground black pepper.
