I don't often end up cooking extra food so that there is any left, and even if I had, I would have probably have already eaten the rest later in the evening! However this time there was plenty left... somehow. After eating my fair share, my thoughts immediately turned too... what am I going to make out of the leftovers.
Going for a brunch vibe, I came up with a couple ideas.... Chilli omelette and Chilli burrito, but finally decided to bake eggs, INsideeee the remaining chilli. If you like Shakshuka then you are going to LOVE this!
So in answer to the question.... YES, you can eat chilli for breakfast. Yes its delightful served on a bed of rice, or with some tortilla chips, however combined with the oozy, protein packed eggs, its just a master piece. But is it naughty to eat Chilli for breakfast....?

POINT PROVEN! There is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with eating Chilli for breakfast! (well in my mind anyway). So why not rustle up this dish and let me know exactly what you think!
So firstly I'am going to talk you through how to make my delicious Chilli con carne. Ive LOVED chilli con carne since I could walk... and I probably would go as far as saying its my favourite meal.... if made correctly! So follow this recipe for my version, of my favourite Chilli.
To use your leftover Chilli and make this mouthwatering meal, all you will need extra is some eggs.
I simply ate this dish as it was, with a couple of leaves, however if you want it to be more filling you could add it onto some toast. Its such a simple leftover brunch, which will keep you full until dinner time. Give it a go at let me know if you agree... that you can eat chilli for breakfast.
