2 Tbsp peeled and diced medium-hot chili-pepper or low sodium diced tomatoes
1 3/4 cup egg substitute
Salt and pepper
Cooking spray
1 Toast nuts in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring often; reserve. Spray nonstick pan with cooking spray.
2 Stir in cactus; toss gently over moderate heat until crisp-tender (about 4–5 minutes). Stir in chili-pepper.
3 Blend eggs, adding salt to taste. Add eggs to cactus and chilies. Stir often until set. Sprinkle with pepper and pine nuts and serve hot.
