It was one of those afternoons. It was one where I almost tossed in the kitchen sink. You see, I was rather ravenous and my palate called for something spicy yet filling. What did I do? I went for my bottle of store-bought salsa (the hot version). That salsa has never seen or felt a chip. Moreover, I’m not a lover of chips. Call me ‘nutty’ call me whatever. Whenever I purchase a bottle of salsa is for other reasons. And today, I felt like a salsa omelet. Si! Si!
Already I had my salsa in the refrigerator for chilling. With a mad flash I retrieved that ‘bad boy’ and warmed about three tablespoons in the microwave. I was in the mood for a protein meal with some spice to it.Eggs came to mind. Been there before and liked the taste. All I needed to do was to whisk my couple of eggs. There was no need for water or milk.
I sprinkled a pinch of salt and black pepper along with finely chopped parsley I had on hand. In a hot skillet, I drizzled olive oil and in went my egg batter under low to medium heat.
As soon as my egg batter was set, I spooned on my warmed salsa and did my flip. Yes, you guessed correctly some of that salsa did a little oozing. Caliente! Caliente! But, I didn’t care. I couldn’t wait to devour. But first, I had to make a few additions.
I reached for my left-over avocado and sliced on a few pieces.I reckoned that would aid with cooling my palate and provide a smooth and flavorful addition. I felt like I was in a Mexican eatery. All that was missing was cheese and cilantro. I smiled. I didn’t allow that to bother me. I rocked my salsa omelet and garnished with parsley I had on hand. And to top it off I also added a few sliced strawberries to temper all that beautiful heat. Now, that provided a perfect balance. Ole! Ole!
