Step 1

In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add in the onion, ground turkey and spices. Season with salt and pepper. Crumble the turkey and sauté until cooked through. Add in the water and salsa and stir everything together. Remove the mixture from the skillet and onto a plate.

Step 2

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, egg whites, milk, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Spray the skillet with cooking spray and lower the heat to medium-low. Pour in the eggs and stir them until scrambled. Just before they are finished cooking add the turkey back in and stir everything together.

Step 3

Top with shredded cheese and cover the skillet with a lid or top loosely with foil until the cheese melts, about 1 minute. Serve the skillet as is or top with chopped tomatoes, avocado, red onions, cilantro and extra salsa.
