DMX -- Cookin' Chicken Fajita Omelettes At IHOP

EXCLUSIVE

DMX took a turn at the griddle and whipped up a mean chicken fajita omelette at an IHOP outside Buffalo, NY ... but don't worry, he's not ditching hip-hop for pancake flippin'. 

X, who was released from the slammer on Friday, was spotted behind the IHOP serving window over the weekend, days after his release, leading folks to think he'd gotten himself a new post-prison gig as a line cook.

Not so ... we're told he was there to meet his manager and after the meal wanted to meet the cooks who made his meal, and that's when he got a little too comfortable with the grease and pan. 

You can't blame the guy ... he was locked away for a couple months and likely worked up some cravings.
