I learned this recipe from my ex- mother-in-law. A busybody of a woman, but an excellent (and popular!) cook! She used to make this for my ex-husband occasionally, and since he seemed to really live this dish, I learned to make it. Since then, I have made it often during the past years, and whenever I do, its always a big hit! Even folks who dont really care for eggs all that much have absolutely LOVED this dish. The marriage may not have lasted, but I sure did come out the winner from the dissolution, as I learned ALOT from my former MIL!

How to Make Spicy Mexican Breakfast Omlette


  1. Using a small spoon, crack one small opening into each egg, and remove the egg whites from each egg into a bowl. Beat until well 'fluffed'. Once the whites are fluffy enough to your own satisfaction, add the yolks and beat again.
  2. After heating oil in an omelette (egg) pan, add only the egg mixture to pan, on medium low heat. Cook until just the bottom is slighty starting to turn gold-ish brown color.
  3. Crushing the oregano in the palms of your hand, sprinkle over the egg (while still cooking), and add the cheese. Mix egg (slightly).
  4. Flip over entire omlette, and break up into several pieces. Add El Pato sauce, and sprinkle a pinch of salt during the last part of the cooking process. Cover and simmer on low about 5 -7 mins, stirring once half way through.
