Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2-3 c
leftover chili (home made, any recipe)
2-4
flour tortillas
5-6
eggs
1 1/2 c
cheddar cheese, shredded (medium or sharp)
sour cream
tomatoes (optional)
green onions, chopped (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Scramble up some eggs, mix with a little water or milk to make them fluffy. Or just scramble them and season with salt and pepper.
2
In a saucepan or the microwave, heat up your leftover chili.
3
Zap the flour tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds to make them soft.
4
Place a tortilla on a microwave safe plate. Spoon some chili onto the middle of the tortilla, being careful to leave enough tortilla edge to fold up into your burrito. (I would suggest using a slotted spoon. You don't want too much soupiness or it will soak right thru the tortilla and make it doughy and fall apart.)
5
Layer some scrambled eggs on top of the chili, then top with shredded cheese. Dollop with sour cream.
6
Roll up into burrito, put in microwave for about 30 seconds or long enough to melt the cheese.
