Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pans with paper baking cups.
Stir eggs with sugar and oil, beat until creamy. Add vanilla, vinegar, baking soda, and salt. Mix in sour cream (or greek yogurt) then stir in flour. (Batter may be slightly lumpy.) Stir in chocolate chips.
Make the cream cheese filling: stir (or use a hand mixer) together cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
Fill muffin cups with about 2 tablespoons of muffin batter. Add about 1-2 teaspoons of cream cheese to the center of each muffin, then top with another 1 tablespoon of batter.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of a muffin. Cool 5 minutes in pan then remove to a rack to cool completely.
