This is the best frittata I've ever made. It truly hit all of the right notes. This amount was enough for two full servings (2 pie shaped slices per person) - and I was very full! The only tweak I made was to increase the green onion in the salsa to two and I used approx 1/3 C red onion in the frittata (oh, and I added a few extra cherry tomatoes, too). YUM!

I did not expect eggs and beans to go so well together, but wow! I'm more of a piggy b/c 2 of us devoured it for lunch. I had no jalapeños so I used chili infused olive oil to add some kick; also no tomatoes, so I added chopped orange peppers instead. Next time I intend to use the proper ingredients - that bean salsa was out of this world! This was very WW friendly, too!

Great frittata. Mine was more of an 'evening' frittata rather than a 'morning' one......therefore no pics. lol. It was simple to make and the ingredients went together well. I halved the recipe and used diced tomatoes since I didn't have grape tomatoes on hand. Thanks for sharing, Teresa.

Enjoyable, tasty Frittata that well pleased our taste buds today. The black bean, cilantro salsa is a definite must for the reason that it picks up the flavors to the last bite. Made for a great light lunch today and can see how well it will present on a brunch or breakfast table. Thank you TeresaS for sharing.

This was something you expect from a high end restaurant. I prepared the salsa the day before adding in 1 scant tsp minced garlic and a pinch of salt. I can't see the servings feeding six, it's more like three. Pay attention to the oven cooking times, every oven cooks differently, I think I may have over cooked the eggs slightly, when I make it again I will pull them out slightly earlier. This made a wonderful easy light dinner served with toasted bread slices. thank you very much Teresa.
