Veggie Frittata – Mexican Style

Posted in Home Made Cooking

Vegetable Frittata or Omelet is one of my favorite dishes because it’s fast, it’s easy, and every time I make it I get to reinvent it. I make it based on the veggies I have in the fridge and based on the leftovers. This time I made it Mexican-ish, because it has corn in it. It turned out beautiful. The kids loved it with ketchup on top and the adults added some Tabasco sauce. Just what I like – easy, fast and effective time wise and ingredient wise.
