  2. Add green chilies and stir to mix.  Pour egg mixture over vegetables in skillet; cook for 2-3 minutes or until mixture looks set around the rim. Keeping mixture in skillet, bake in 350ºF oven until knife inserted in center of dish comes out clean or about 20-25 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese and place under broiler for about 1 minute to brown and melt cheese (watch carefully).  Cut into wedges and serve with reduced-fat sour cream and salsa and garnish with sprigs of cilantro, if desired.
  4. Hint:  To make the skillet oven-proof, wrap the handle with aluminum foil.
