- In a low-sided, non-stick omelet pan, melt the butter on medium heat.
- Add the chouriço and lightly brown for three minutes, turning frequently.
- Add salt and pepper to the eggs and whisk well.
- When the chouriço is browned, push to the middle of the pan and slowly pour in the eggs.
- Shake the pan lightly to let the eggs spread out.
- Reduce the heat to low and let the eggs settle, raising the edges with a spatula, from time to time, to allow the liquid to run off to the sides.
- When most of the liquid solidifies, sprinkle with the chives, carefully fold over and let sit for 30 seconds to a minute.
