      What a great idea! We love chili and enjoyed this for breakfast this morning. However, the ingredient amounts seemed pretty far off to me - too much chili & cheese for not enough eggs. I made a 4-egg omelet in a 10" pan and still couldn't reasonably use up all the chili & cheese. The inside was as full as I could get it, and I smothered the outside with more chili & cheese when I served it up - and we still had a spoonful of chili and about a third of the cheese left over. So I think the amount of chili & cheese might work better for 2 3-egg omelets or a similar amount of eggs.

      This made a great and hearty omelet! I used a little less chili than called for and included the optional sour cream. Had this as "breakfast for dinner" and we all enjoyed it - thanks for sharing!
