  3. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk until fluffy.
  4. Lower the heat and add olive oil in the same skillet. Add the eggs. As the edges are becoming solid, push the edges towards the middle, allowing the uncooked parts to flow to the edge. Cook for a few minutes, keep the insides a bit runny.
  5. Squeeze lime on the ground beef. Combine well.
  6. Cut avocado in half. Remove the pit and scoop out the flesh. Cut into pieces.
  7. Distribute ground beef on top of the omelet. Add 2/3 of the shredded cheese and chopped tomatoes.
  8. Carefully remove the omelet from the skillet. Fold and top with more cheese, avocado and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Matt and Megha's tip!

You can serve the omelet with a hot sauce, a sour cream and avocado mixture, or just drizzle with some olive oil.

    How much seasoning are you supposed to use per serving?

    You will use it all when making the recipe, so it should be divided equally among servings.
