Chili Cheese Omelet

Tara Waites


I first tasted this omelet at the Kettle diner in Mesquite, TX when I was 15. I fell in love with it and have been making it for 29 years. It is one of my FAVORITE comfort foods.
**Great topping for this is sour cream, fresh jalapeno, avocado salsa and regular salsa**
