Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day, especially on a holiday or a weekend when we might be a little more free to do as we wish. I love a good omelette, and Dan makes the absolute best omelettes in the world. When you combine Tex-Mex and the ever delicious omelette… well, you've got a winning omelette recipe and a yummy breakfast idea.
Usually we just add a few veggies and a little cheese to our omelettes. Sometimes we'll add a little ham or bacon. This time, however, we used tenderloin tips we picked up at our local meat shop. The tenderloin adds flavor like no other, especially when combined with different cheeses and vegetables.
Below you'll find the printable recipe. Memorial Day is coming up. What better way to celebrate than with an omelette to start your day?!
