How to Make Leftover Chili Breakfast Burritos

Step-by-Step

  • 1Scramble up some eggs, mix with a little water or milk to make them fluffy. Or just scramble them and season with salt and pepper.
  • 2In a saucepan or microwave, heat up your leftover chili.
  • 3Zap the flour tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds to make them soft.
  • 4Place 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 through the tortilla and make it doughy and fall apart.)
  • 5Layer some scrambled eggs on top of the chili, then top with shredded cheese. Dollop with sour cream.
  • 6Roll up into burrito.
  • 7Put into microwave for about 30 seconds or long enough to melt the cheese.
