Chili Omlet

Wondering what to do with some left over chili? Have it for breakfast! I know you're probably thinking, "A bowl of chili with Fritos doesn't really strike me as breakfast food." I agree with you... but try it in an omlet and you'll enjoy the hearty warmth of the chili, repurposed in an omlet. Add some cheddar cheese and you're good to go for the rest of the morning.

Chili Omlet
1/2 cup chili (here's the link to Mark's Famous Chili)
2 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
salt & pepper to taste

First warm the chili in a small saucepan over low heat.

In a small skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Pour in the eggs, season with salt & pepper to taste, and cook until set around the edges. Using a spatula, carefully flip the omlet to cook the other side (try to keep it together in one piece, but if it falls apart, don't worry - it will still taste delicious). Spoon the chili onto one half of the omlet and flip the other half over the chili. Top with some shredded cheddar cheese.
