Start off the day with this delicious hearty breakfast.

Chili Cheese Omelet

This is one hearty breakfast.

A cheesy egg omelet topped with warm chili and more cheese can really hit the spot for breakfast, brunch or even dinner.

There are 3 types of cheese in this omelet; hot pepper jack cheese and mozzarella are inside of the omelet and cheddar cheese is on top.

For a shortcut, this recipe can be made with scrambled eggs instead of an omelet.

Just top the warm scrambled eggs with warm chili, shredded cheddar cheese…and breakfast is ready to be served.

Either way, warm chili, cheese and eggs tastes wonderful together.

TIPThe most important tip for making this recipe is the same one with all recipes that have eggs in them…never crack an egg over food.

It’s a good idea to crack each egg in a separate bowl first before adding it in with other ingredients (or in with other eggs).

This way, if the egg is bad (i.e. smells off or bad, or is discolored), it can be discarded before contaminating other ingredients.
