Insider Info

Mexican-style ingredients spice up this quick and easy microwave omelet.

The secret of success.   A tight cover is essential to achieve a tender, easily rolled or folded omelet in the microwave. It makes stirring unnecessary, and it traps steam, which promotes even cooking.

Microwave ovens vary. Cook times may need to be adjusted.
