I love avocados, and when I was strictly following South Beach one of the reasons I loved the South Beach Diet was because it includes good fats, like avocados, nuts, or olive oil in reasonable amounts. I’d have a very hard time sticking with a diet that didn’t allow those kinds of things, and especially avocados, which are one of my favorite foods.

I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to share this recipe for Southwestern Omelet with Guacamole and Salsa and these photos are even from my old camera, but this omelet with guacamole tucked inside is something that would definitely help me not feel deprived when I’m trying to eat healthy.

This recipe uses what I call “easy guacamole,” which I make by mashing up an avocado with some spices. If you have other guacamole on hand you can certainly use it and Cilantro-Lover’s Perfect Guacamole would be delicious here if you don’t mind a little more work. Hope you enjoy; this is a perfect breakfast for avocado lovers!

How to Make Southwestern Omelet with Guacamole and Salsa:

(Scroll down for complete recipe including nutritional information.)

  1. You can use any pre-made guacamole for this recipe or make my “Easy Guacamole) If you’re making guacamole, start by mashing an avocado with lime juice, Green Tabasco Sauce (affiliate link), salt, and a pinch of chile powder. (This makes enough guacamole for two to three omelets. )
  2. Beat together two eggs, chile powder, and a bit of Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) if desired. 
  3. Mist or brush a thin layer of olive oil in a small frying pan, then pour in the eggs and turn heat to low. 
  4. Let eggs cook about 3 minutes, or until they’re starting to get firm on the bottom, then sprinkle over 2 T of cheese.
  5. Let eggs cook 1-2 minutes more, until the cheese is starting to melt.
  6. When cheese is partly melted, put on 2 T of the guacamole mixture and use a rubber scraper to carefully spread it over one side of the eggs.
  7. Let this cook about 1 minute more, just enough to barely warm through the guacamole mixture.
  8. Then carefully fold over the side without guacamole on to the side with guacamole. (Another reason not to use too much guacamole is that it will leak out the sides if you have it spread on too thickly.)
  9. Cover pan and cook 3-5 minutes more, until omelet is cooked through. Use a large turner to lift the omelet out on to a plate.
  10. Repeat for second omelet if you’re making two.
  11. Serve Southwestern Omelet hot, with your favorite salsa. I used Pace Picante Sauce (affiliate link), which doesn’t have added sugar.

Southwestern Omelet with Guacamole and Salsa is a fun low-carb breakfast idea and you can make this even easier by using pre-made guacamole if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons Guacamole of your choice
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp. chile powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Spike Seasoning (see notes)
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste (I used some pepper, but not any salt)
  • 1/4 cup grated cheese
  • olive oil or non-stick spray for misting or brushing pan
  • 1/4 cup Pace Picante Sauce (see notes)

Instructions

  1. If you're making my "Easy Guacamole" start by mashing an avocado with 2 tsp. fresh lime juice, desired amount of Green Tabasco Sauce (affiliate link), salt, and a pinch of chile powder.
  2. In another bowl, beat together eggs, chile powder, Spike Seasoning, plus salt and pepper as desired.
  3. Spray or brush a small 8-9 inch frying pan with olive oil or non-stick spray.
  4. Turn burner under pan to low, heat about a minute, then pour  half the eggs into pan and cook 3 minutes, until the eggs are starting to get well set on the bottom. (I use a rubber scraper and lift the edge to see if it’s set.)
  5. Sprinkle 2 T cheese over the entire surface of the eggs and cook 1-2 minutes more, until the cheese is starting to melt.
  6. Then put 2 T guacamole mixture on the eggs and use a rubber scraper to carefully spread it around until it covers one side of the eggs.
  7. Let omelet cook 1 minute more.
  8. After one minute, gently fold the side without guacamole over the side with the guacamole.
  9. Cover the frying pan and cook 3-5 minutes more, until the omelet is cooked through.
  10. Use a large turner to lift the omelet on to a plate and serve hot, with your favorite salsa.
  11. Repeat for second omelet.

Notes

I love Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) but use any all-purpose seasoning mix you have on hand. I use Pace Picante Sauce (affiliate link), which doesn't have added sugar, but use any low-sugar salsa you prefer.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This Southwestern Omelet with Guacamole and Salsa is a perfect breakfast for any phase of the original South Beach Diet and other low-carb eating plans. One-third of an avocado is equal to 1 T fat for South Beach guidelines, so if you’re strictly following South Beach, consider that in your total fat allotment for the day. For low-carb diets, no need to limit the amount of guacamole.

  1. I was going to tell you how much I love eggs with avocado – but it seems you already caught that!

  2. DH doesn't eat guac or avocados in general but you can bet I do! I've eaten them sliced with scrambled eggs but not as guac in an omelet. I'll give this a try, Kalyn. Thanks for all you do. 🙂

  3. I'm with you. I love avocados and try to eat them every day. Usually in a salad. I love this omelet idea. I've never thought of putting guac in an omelet! Can't wait to try it.

  4. Wow, looks awesome. I've just started SBD Phase I, so your blog is a godsend!

  5. Eggs, cheese, avocado and hot sauce — perfection! This would be a great lunch dish with a green salad.

  6. Thanks for this. Any way I can include avocados in my diet the better. And I appreciate the fact that you keep your guacamole simple! Rick Perry http://www.scratchchef.com

  7. Hi, Kalyn! This omelet looks so tasty! I've never tried with these flavors.

  8. I love serving omelets for dinner, but usually with mushrooms! We happen to have a couple of avocados–this will be dinner tonight! Happy 2010, Kalyn!

  9. what a great kicked up omelet

  10. Avocados are one of my favorite foods, too. Doesn't guacamole kick everything up a notch (or two)? I love it simple, as well- with a squeeze of lime.

    These photographs are making my tummy growl.

  11. I just did this recipe and it is delish!! I was a little thrown off by adding guacamole to an omelet but it was very good and very satisfying!

  12. This looks wonderful. I am looking for quick recipes to fix while my husband is gone for a business trip, things that produce no left overs and this will be awesome and healthy for us girls!

  13. What a perfect omelet! The guacamole would be a wonderful way to spice up the flavors.

  14. I'm glad people are liking this, and that I'm not the only ones who loves my "good fats." I should have mentioned that this was probably inspired by the Guacamole Omelet at Ruth's Diner in Salt Lake City, I'm sure on some subconscious level that's where I got the idea, although I just thought of it this minute.

  15. Good point about the good fats and bad fats, Kalyn. So many people try to eliminate fats totally from their diet, not realizing that is unhealthy. The avocados and nuts and other good fats are where the healthy omega 3 fats are! Great post.

  16. I totally hear you on the "good fats" argument – how can we be expected to give up avocado? The omelet looks like a delicious way to get you started in the am.

  17. I totally agree with you – any diet devoid of fat is actually just not good for you. We need fats, especially good ones, to make all sorts of hormones! This looks fantastic. I love the idea of a guac-stuffed omelet.

  18. I wish not acquiesce in on it. I over nice post. Particularly the appellation attracted me to be familiar with the intact story.

  19. Looks great. I've never thought of using guacamole in an omelet. Somewhat odd combination really.

  20. Looks tasty! I have an avocado waiting to be used – this might be the candidate.
