Leftover Taco Omlet

Dana Ramsey


Whenever we have tacos or chili I usually use the leftovers to make omlets which are so yummy. I love making tacos and chilis as you can change them each time you make them by changing the ingredients. This omlet has taco meat, with hominy, cayenne pepper, green and hungarian hot wax peppers, taco cheese, and cumin with a little taco salsa mixed in.

How to Make Leftover Taco Omlet


  1. While you are whipping up the eggs to throw into the fry pan, sprayed with cooking spray, just pop your leftover taco meat into the microwave for about 60 seconds and set aside.
  2. Pour your beaten eggs into the fry pan and fry on medium heat until slightly set, add the leftover taco meat, top with more cheese, and anything else you normally add to your tacos on one side of the omlet base, fold the other half over and heat on low until cheese is melted and meat mixture is heated through and enjoy! Super simple but so tasty!
