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.

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