When you get down to the basics, you can’t go wrong, even on a keto diet that avoids rice, beans, and corn.
Keep the carbs low and bulk up your breakfast with Cauliflower Rice.
Leftover 15 Minute Carne Asada tastes amazing the next day when you add it to an omelette.
If you’re missing tortillas, opt for a Cauliflower Tortilla instead of a corn or flour one.

How to Make a Mexican Omelette
Grab a few ingredients and follow the simple steps below. Anyone can make this breakfast meal!
If you need a basic tutorial, review how to make a keto omelette. Then dive into this recipe with confidence.
Butter – Isn’t everything better with butter? Choose grass-fed butter, if you can.
Eggs – Opt for free-range, pastured eggs or raise them yourself!
Queso fresco – A soft authentic Mexican cheese
Salsa – A standard tomato salsa is all you need, although I also recommend Tomatillo Avocado Salsa.
Salt and pepper – Just a little seasoning to taste
Begin by warming the butter over medium-high heat in a skillet or frying pan.
Next, pour eggs in the pan and leave for 2 minutes until edges cook and eggs start to set.
Then, lower the heat until the egg is almost cooked through and arrange the cheese and salsa on one half of the omelette.
The cheese is soft; just crumble it with your fingers as you put it in.
Fold the omelette in half by bringing the egg side up to cover and rest on top of the filling.
Finally, remove from heat and serve hot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Are you ready to go wild with more low-carb fillings? Think of any of your favorite taco fillings and use them. Hot sauce, squeeze of lime, and diced green chilis add some zip. 2-4 ounces of browned ground beef or chorizo adds extra protein and amazing flavor. For the final finish, top with sour cream or guacamole.
This low-carb version only has 391 calories. Please recalculate if you add common Mexican food ingredients like rice, beans, and corn in your dish. By adding other ingredients, you also add more calories.
