  • cheesy-omelletecheesy-omellete(2)

    3-4 large eggs

    Chopped ham, about 1/3 of a cup

    *Chopped cilantro, about 1/3 of a cup

    Salt & pepper to taste

    Grated cheese, about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup

    Mama Bella Hot Sauce

    Serves 2-3

    Begin by slowly warming up a large skillet.

    Coat entire skillet with cooking oil once it is warm.

    Lower heat while you finish mixing the ingredients.

    Add the first 4 ingredients to a small mixing bowl and whip well.

    Increase heat level to medium, wait about a minute then pour egg mixture.

    Increase heat level if necessary.  After about a minute if you notice there’s quite a bit of liquidy egg mixture on the top–cook it by slightly lifting the egg omellete with a spatula and tilting the skillet so the egg batter on top begins to cook.  Do this all around the pan as much as you see necessary to reduce the egg mixture.

    Next, sprinkle cheese over entire omellete.   Turn the omellete over, once it’s cooked enough that it will not fall apart.

    Allow the omellete to cook until the cheese gets crispy then flip over for the last time.

    Add your favorite Hot Mama Bella Hot Sauce and you are ready to serve & enjoy!

    *(Cilantro is optional–use any veggies: bell peppers, onions, etc.)

    This guacamole recipe is not your typical chunky guacamole recipe.  This recipe is the consistency of a dressing.  Add it to your wraps, tacos, burritos, tostadas, salads, etc.

    My mother and father would go to a taco stand in Mexico and loved the guacamole that was served there.  It took her a couple of tries and she was able to figure it out.  I know that if my mother were alive she would approve of my Mama Bella Hot Sauce addition to her recipe!

    4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast at room temperature OR

    a Rotissery chicken, skinned.

    1/2 t Salt;  1/3 C Mayonnaise;  2/3 C Greek Yogurt

    1/2 t Cumin;  1/2 t Corriander;  1/2 t Garlic powder

    1/4 C Pecans chopped ; 1/4 C Cashews chopped

    1 C Celery chopped;      1/2 C Cucumber chopped;         1/4 C Red onion chopped;  1/4 C Cilantro chopped;   1/2 Jar Mama Bella Piñita Hot Sauce

    Chop or shred chicken into a large bowl.  Combine all ingredients and enjoy in a toasted pita bread or over whole grain crackers.

    This recipe can be tweaked to your desired heat level by adding or taking away any of Mama Bella Hot Sauces.

    The half jar of Mama Bella’s Piñita Hot Sauce gives this chicken salad a slight sweet heat that is addicting!



    1 Tablespoon olive oil

    4oz chopped onion

    1 lb ground beef OR ground turkey

    1 8oz jar Mama Bella Corn Relish

    ¼ teaspoon salt

    1 cup shredded cheese

    Phyllo Dough, 9 sheets

    Note: Phyllo Dough should be thawed in unopened package in refrigerator overnight.  Bring closed package to room temperature before using.

    Add the 1 teaspoon olive oil to a warm pan.  Sauté the chopped onion for 1 minute then add the ground beef.  Remove as much of the beef fat as possible.

    Once the meat is cooked add the salt and the Mama Bella Corn Relish.  Mix well, add cheese and set mixture aside to cool down, about 15 minutes.

    Working with the Phyllo Dough:

    *Phyllo Dough (layer 3 sheets per set for a total of 9 sheets; keep covered with a moist cloth)

    *Melted butter   *Brush  *Sharp knife   * Measuring cup  1/3

    Preheat oven to 190°

    By now the Phyllo Dough should be at room temperature.   Unroll the phyllo dough and put a moist cloth over it to prevent it from breaking.

    Put wax paper on the counter top, put 1 phyllo dough sheet on top of the wax paper and brush it with butter. (Do not over butter).  Place the second sheet on top of that one and butter it.  Do the same for the third sheet of phyllo dough.  Then cut the phyllo dough into three strips with a sharp knife.  Place about 1/3 of a cup of meat mixture on a corner and then begin making the triangles.  Lightly brush the top of the triangles with butter.

    (Remember to keep the phyllo dough that is not being used, covered at all times).

    Place the phyllo dough triangles on an ungreased baking sheet.     Bake 25 minutes.

    This recipe yielded 9 triangles

    If you want the pastry to be a little golden:  After the 25 minutes were up, we placed the baking sheet in the lowest part of the oven and set  the broiler at 550°.  It took between 1 – 2minutes to bring them to a golden point.   Make sure you stay by the oven and observe them OR set a timer while they are broiling.
