No, not chocolate....black on the outside and creamy in the middle!

That reminds me I should clarify something. When I made the video recipe I was thinking about countryside omelet. That's why it has browning and rustic feeling.

So the title of this thread is wrong (sorry) This is no classic french omelet. It is a rustic omelet.

I will try to do one on the very classic way next time. (much harder for me).

Not the way my dad makes them, but in my world, hot sauce is always added to eggs--either on top or when cooking. I keep frozen jalapeno peppers just for eggs. I use the microplane and grate them frozen.

I do love Sriracha sauce ! We don't have Jalapeno in France ? Are they strong ? fruity ?

They are potent but one of the beauties of peppers is that you can add as little or as much as you like according to your own taste.

I really enjoy the unique taste of habaneros. They are very hot but just a little bit imparts a great flavour.

This might be helpful...

No jalapenos in France?? Does anyone eat Mexican food in France? Get some jalapeno seeds and grow them; they are very easy to grow and delicious. They've gotta be one of the most versatile peppers ever. I'd say very fruity with widely varying heat levels, sometimes the pepper is super hot and other times it's mild.

Sorry no Jalapenos indeed :( We don't eat mexican food over here. I think it's just a bit far from our culture (but i would love to taste real mexican food:)

We do have some chili in France (piments oiseaux) but the principle of "hotness" is almost out of the french cuisine. Definitely not like US, or Asia or even Italy where you can enjoy hot food...
