In a medium bowl, lightly beat eggs, water, salt and pepper set aside.

MW In a 10-inch non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion and green pepper in butter or margarine for 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add ham and sauté 1 minute longer. Transfer to a small bowl. With a paper towel, wipe browned bits from skillet to prevent egg from sticking.

In skillet over medium heat, melt butter or margarine until it foams and begins to turn golden. Pour egg mixture into skillet stir in vegetable-ham mixture. Cook for 30 seconds or until egg mixture begins to set. Use a spatula and run around edge of skillet. Lift edges while tilting pan and let uncooked center portion run under cooked portion.

When set but still creamy, remove from heat and sprinkle cheese over center of omelet. Using spatula, lift one-third of omelet and fold over cheese. Fold opposite side over. Roll omelet out of pan onto a warm plate.

Cut individual servings and garnish with parsley. Serve with taco sauce if desired.
