The Ultimate Cheesy Jalapeno-Ham Omelet

Bust out the cheese and jalapeno peppers for this spicy and cheesy omelet that simply oozes cheese. It is sure to win over even the most hard-to-please breakfast folks.

The Ultimate Cheesy Jalapeno-Ham Omelet Recipe


  • 1 egg
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 1 ounce cooked ham, diced
  • 1.5 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1.5 ounces shredded chihuaha cheese
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced for topping
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  • Preheat an 8-inch pan to medium heat and lightly coat with oil.
  • Add ham and jalapeno pepper. Cook about 5 minutes to soften. Set aside.
  • Beat egg in a bowl and add to hot pan. Rotate the pan a bit to allow the egg to spread evenly over the pan.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and cook about 1 minute, or until egg is set and no longer liquid.
  • Add jalapeno and ham mixture to the center of the egg.
  • Add cheese and fold egg in half over the top of the jalapeno-ham-cheese mixture and press lightly. Basically, you are enclosing the contents within the egg.
  • Cook about 30 seconds longer, or until cheese melts.
  • Transfer to a plate, top with avocado slices and serve!
