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

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, whisk eggs with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; set aside. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet with a tight-fitting lid, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add bell peppers and onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes.

  • Add eggs, and cook, quickly stirring with a heatproof rubber spatula, until eggs thicken, about 1 minute. Sprinkle cheese evenly over egg mixture. Cover skillet; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook frittata for 15 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, and let stand, covered, 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk together vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large bowl; season dressing with salt and pepper. Add lettuce, and toss to combine.

  • Slide frittata onto a work surface; cut into wedges. Top frittata with salsa, and serve with salad.

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.
