I’ve gotten pretty serious about omelettes ever since I finally taught myself how to make this breakfast classic. I mean, how could I follow up that glorious seafood omelette with something simple like a ham and cheese omelette?
Nope. I don’t roll that way. Plus, I’m all about big flavor. Keep my tastebuds dancing, and we’ve got a meal worth talking about.
Enter the southwestern sausage omelette. This is one big ass breakfast packed with protein, veggies, and warm earthiness from spices like cumin and paprika.
This breakfast recipe makes two gigantic servings – or be a little more conservative and split it into three portions. You do you.
I built this omelette entirely around the idea of topping it with crumbled Siete tortilla chips. What can I say? Inspiration comes in the strangest places sometimes!
But in all seriousness, these paleo tortilla chips are the bomb. So when I got my hands on them, I immediately started dreaming up ways I could use them. It just so happened that was around the same time I got the hang of omelettes, so the resulting combination made sense (more or less).
If you haven’t had Siete tortilla chips before, you can find them on Amazon or through Thrive Market (frankly, they’re cheaper on Thrive Market than I’ve ever seen them)! Yes, they’re an optional topping here and you really only need a few chips for the topping. But I bet you’ll fall in love with them just like I did! They aren’t as sturdy as standard tortilla chips, but that doesn’t stop me from having a heyday with chips and salsa.
Okay, okay. Let’s focus on the omelette.
I truly find that the toppings make or break this omelette. The filling is great, but you need the salsa and avocado to really bring everything together. So please don’t skip the avo and salsa! Of course, we’ve already covered how you can make it extra fancy with a few crumbled chips. And a little chopped cilantro? Oof, we’ve got a meal here. A dang good meal.
