A lovely Sunday Brunch. I cut the recipe in half for one serving. It was a large serving but enjoyed and I ate it all. Great blend of flavours. I'll look forward to the next time I make this omelet.

This omelet is OUTRAGEOUSLY Good!! It's the best omelet I've ever had. I followed the recipe as written except that because I have a few green tomatoes I decided to replace them with the mushrooms and sprinkled some adobo Goya seasoning to the vegetable saute. Other than that I followed the recipe. I'm telling ya, it's Awesome. I forgot to sprinkle the cilantro over the top for the picture, but we ate it with it on. The black beans with tomatillo salsa really adds volumes to this dish! Thank you ellie for sharing such a winner. Made it for PickMeTag game.
