Ingredients

For the Chili:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bell pepper (red or green), chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for added heat)
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth

For the Eggs:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For Garnish:

  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Sliced avocado
  • Shredded cheese (cheddar or your favorite type)
  • Sour cream
  • Sliced green onions

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Chili:
    • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat.
    • Add the finely chopped onion and chopped bell pepper. Sauté for about 5 minutes, or until they start to soften and become fragrant.
    • Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
    • Stir in the diced tomatoes (including their juices), black beans, kidney beans, chili powder, ground cumin, smoked paprika, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper if you prefer a bit of heat.
    • Pour in the vegetable or chicken broth, stirring well to combine all the ingredients.
    • Bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and let it cook gently for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. This allows the flavors to meld together and the chili to thicken.
  2. Cook the Eggs:
    • While the chili is simmering, heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the butter or olive oil.
    • Crack the eggs into the skillet, taking care not to break the yolks if you prefer sunny side up or over easy eggs. Cook the eggs to your preferred level of doneness. For sunny side up, cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny. For over easy, gently flip the eggs and cook for an additional minute.
    • Season the eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Assemble and Serve:
    • Once the chili is ready, spoon a generous portion onto each serving plate.
    • Place one or two cooked eggs on top of each plate of chili.
    • Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro, slices of creamy avocado, a sprinkle of shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and a few slices of green onion for added freshness and texture.
  4. Enjoy:
    • Serve the breakfast chili and eggs hot. Consider adding some toast or warm tortillas on the side to complete the meal.

This dish is not only flavorful and satisfying but also packed with protein and fiber, making it an excellent choice for a nutritious breakfast. Enjoy the blend of spices, creamy eggs, and fresh garnishes for a delightful start to your day!
