Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. While oven is heating, heat a 10.5” to 12” (26 cm to 30 cm) oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. (Note: skillet size is for 4 servings. If customizing, use a larger or smaller skillet, or you can transfer the cooked filling to a muffin tin and top it with the egg mixture before baking.)
  3. To heated skillet, add oil and then bell peppers. Saute until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add ground beef. Saute beef, breaking it apart until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Add seasoning mixture and white parts of green onions to beef and saute until spices are fragrant, ~2 minutes.
  6. Stir in olives, tomatoes, and green parts of green onions.
  7. Pour egg mixture over beef and vegetables. Add cheese and stir to combine.
  8. Transfer skillet to oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. (Frittata is done when eggs are set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.)
  9. Slice frittata. Serve with sour cream on top and salsa and chips on the side.

Very good. On others' suggestions, I added a little chopped cilantro. I also omitted the olives since I don't like them, and added more ground beef (for a total of 1 lb.). I think sausage would be a good alternative too. As usual, more salt was needed, but I like to leave that for the people eating it.

This was very good, but I would prefer other traditional frittatas over this one in the future. Great flavors though, and my husband loved it.

It was good but not salty enough. I had to add extra salt on top.
