Here’s the recipe I use for the Guacamole Omelet’s:

Makes 2 omelets .



                1 large avocado, mashed

                1 shallot minced

                1 Serrano pepper, seeded and minced

                ½ lime, juice only

                1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, minced

                Pinch of salt

                Dash of hot sauce


                4 large eggs

                2 tablespoons water

                1 teaspoon butter per omelet

                Fresh cilantro, garnish

                Hot sauce, garnish

                Tortilla chips, garnish



1)      To make the guacamole, mince shallot and Serrano very finely. Cube avocado and add it to the bowl and mash everything together [this is where a mortar and pestle may be helpful!]. It can be a little chunky.

2)      Stir in lime juice, cilantro, and season with hot sauce, salt and pepper to taste.

3)      Add a dab of butter to an omelet pan over medium heat [I use my trusty No.9 cast iron skillet!] Cook as you would normally for omelet, using half of the eggs.

4)      Once egg is cooked for omelet, add half the guacamole mixture to one half of the cooked egg.

5)      Once cooked thoroughly, fold in half and slide onto plate. Repeat for 2nd omelet.
Garnish as desired.
