Eat a Fajita!

Why ruin a perfectly lovely omelette full of lean protein and veggies with too much cheese and fatty toppings? Our swap gets it right -- don't you worry!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
3/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
Dash each garlic powder and black pepper
2 oz. cooked and sliced skinless chicken breast
1/4 tsp. fajita seasoning mix
2 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese
2 tbsp. salsa
Optional topping: light or fat-free sour cream

Directions:
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook and stir onion and bell pepper until slightly softened and lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium low. Season egg substitute with garlic powder and black pepper. Add to the skillet with the veggies, and let it coat the bottom. Cover and cook without stirring for 3 minutes, or until just set.

Meanwhile, in a medium microwave-safe bowl, season chicken with fajita seasoning. Cover and microwave for 1 minute, or until hot.

Top half of the omelette with shredded cheese and chicken. Fold the bare half over the filling.

Plate and top with salsa!

Omelette's Not and Say We Did…

Pssst... We're gonna let you in on a little secret. Making something taste like fajitas is simple. If you see "fajita" in a menu item's name, chances are, you can make it at home, guilt-free. Another secret? This fajita omelette from IHOP is WAY higher in fat and calories than you might expect. Over 1,000 calories? It's not a CHIMICHANGA omelette! Fajitas are all about the meat and veggies, right? This morning meal is bogged down with fatty add-ins. We keep it lean and flavorful with ingredients like fat-free egg substitute, reduced-fat cheese, fajita seasoning mix, lean chicken, and fresh veggies. Feel free to share these secrets with ALL your friends...
