This hearty frittata travels south of the border (without leaving the stove). Cool salad and spicy store-bought salsa make it a meal.

Cook's Notes

A bit of patience is key for a perfect frittata: Stir the egg mixture in the skillet until its thickened, then cover and leave it alone to cook. Don't lift the lid to peek!

    Also, if you like a little zip, add some finely minced chipotles in adobo. YUM!

    Mayers, I think the white cheddar was the problem. It's too mild. If you can find it in your market, use a good Mexican cheese like Manchego. If you can't find that, use pecorino romano. Here's a link to Mexican cheese you can use, if you can find them: http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/Articles/Mexican-Cheeses-966/mexican-cheeses.aspx. As for the leftovers, I would have sliced them up very finely and added them to a salad with bacon or leftover ham, with some good cured olives....

    This was so blah! I even added a ton of fresh herbs and it still had no flavor, was unattractive at best. Both my husband and I hated itw - what to do with the leftovers?? Maybe fried rice.

    Very simple, very fast and very good. And any leftovers reheat in the microwave very nicely.
