Eggs are one of my very favorite foods. I love them poached, fried, boiled, in omelets, quiches, pretty much anyway you make them. I can eat them for pretty much any meal. They are such a versatile ingredient and quite frugal too. Eggs are one of my very favorite ingredients to cook with. 

But, I was a little thrown off the first time I ate with my husband’s family and they served up a big plate of chili and eggs. One bite though and I was hooked. I know this sounds weird, but it is one of those meals that you will love once you try it. It can be whipped up super quickly, is very filling, and is especially good on cool autumn or winter nights.

The best accompaniment to this dish is garlic toast. It is also good on tortillas as chili and egg burritos. 

This is one of our favorite week night dinners. It is also great for brunch. It is very hearty and will fill up even the largest appetites. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Chili and Eggs Recipe
The chili and eggs recipe below will feed 6 to 8 people, but this is an easy recipe to increase or decrease.


  • 2 – 15oz. cans chili without beans, we prefer Wolf Brand (I highly suggest not substituting chili with beans, as it completely changes the flavor of the dish)
  • 10 to 12 eggs



1.  Simply whisk the eggs or prefer like you normally would when making scrambled eggs. Do not season them, it is unnecessary.

2.  Scramble the eggs over medium low heat, stirring often.

3.  When the eggs are almost completely done, yet still a bit damp, add the two cans of chili.

4.  Cook until the chili is heated through.

5.  Serve hot with garlic toast. Salsa and/or sour cream can be used as toppings if desired.

    Well, I had not thought to do that with eggs, before. But, why not! Thanks.

    Thanks for the recipe! I have a ton of leftover homemade chili and I was looking for something creative to do with it. I haven’t made it yet, but I will be making a few chili/egg burritos for brunch shortly :)
