      I had a ton of leftover home made chili, and was wondering if it would work in an omelet. I was glad to find a recipe to give me some encouragement. My guess is that my chili was much more "tomato-y" than the canned type called for, but they turned out very yummy. Topped with a spoonful of sour cream. Good stuff.

      This is a great omelet that we've made many times. I started making omelets in a bag and freezing them. Then when somebody wants one, they run the bag under running water, throw it in the microwave omelet pan, and pour chili over. We also like a dollop of sour cream and chopped tomatoes on top.
