  • Heat chili about 5 minutes. For an extra-cheesy omelet, stir in a handful or 2 of the cheese.
  • While this is cooking, heat an 8-inch skillet over medium-low heat and melt the butter.
  • Beat the eggs and pour into the pan. Cook until the egg forms a solid yellow circle.
  • Cover half of the omelet with the chili mixture, reserving 1/4 cup.
  • Add a layer of cheese, reserving 1/4 cup.
  • Fold the omelet and top with the remaining chili and cheese.
  • Slide the omelet onto a plate and garnish with a large dollop of sour cream, if desired.
