1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 T ground cumin

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.

Stir in chili powder and cumin; cook for 10 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt, and pepper; beat with a fork.

In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat, rotating pan to coat bottom.

Add 1/4 of egg mixture.

As eggs start to cook, gently lift edges with a spatula and tilt pan so uncooked portion flows underneath.

Repeat procedure with remaining butter, egg mixture, and chicken mixture.

Top with sour cream, salsa, and green onion, if desired.
