  1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and cook until golden brown,shaking the pan and tossing the potatoes from time to time,3-5 minutes. Stir in chiles and transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
  2. Blend eggs,hot sauce,salt and pepper with a fork in a medium bowl. Stir in cheese, scallions,cilantro(or parsley)and the potato mixture. Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source.
