In general, you can't.

The answer to your question is the same if you'd asked how to completely remove one circuit from receptacle to the breaker, and to add a new circuit. You need to remove the breaker, remove the cable (actually optional), remove the receptacle. Then install a new breaker, install new cable (larger and with more wires), and install a new receptacle.
