Fiesta Scrambled Eggs

I love to fix this spicy scrambled egg dish for friends and family. It’s almost a meal in itself, but I serve it with muffins or biscuits, fresh fruit juice and coffee. —Kay Kropff, Canyon, Texas

    I made it without the bacon (because I didn't have any on hand) and thought these eggs were really good and flavorful.
