Mexican Omelette - Primal Edge Health

Stuff an omelette with tomatoes, cilantro, onion and cheese. Spice it up with cumin, jalapeno and garlic.

Take it to the next level with a topping of guacamole and sour cream. With these simple steps you’ll be eating a complete breakfast, inspired by a classic Mexican burrito!

This recipe is naturally low carb and great for a keto diet.

Love Keto Mexican food?

Me too! This isn’t exactly a burrito, but we come close! I like this wheat-free, bean-free dish better because I feel nourished, my taste buds are satisfied and I have great energy from the healthy fats and easy to digest eggs and veggies. I stuffed all my favorite fillings in this 3 egg omelette (recipe below).

You can also use a Cauliflower Tortilla that bends and flexes perfectly to hold all your goodies or pile burrito fixings on a Keto Flatbread and eat with a knife and fork.

Try bulking up your breakfast with Cauliflower Rice or use left-over 15 Minute Carne Asada to add other Mexican flavored foods in your meal.

With a final flourish, you can top meats or fish with Tomatillo Avocado Salsa… yumm!

Keto Taco Stuffed Peppers is another delicious Mexican-inspired meal any time of the day.

One of my go-to lunches is ground beef cooked in infused turmeric oil (see The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook for the recipe). Pile the meat in a bowl and top with chopped tomato and a few spoonfuls of guacamole or diced avocado. Use salad greens, if you like. The meat could also be added into this omelette to make a bigger meal with more protein and fats. A bigger meal might suit you if you are intermittent fasting or just eating two meals a day.
