  1. Chop the bell pepper, onion and basil.
  2. In a large skillet, cook and sauté onion and green pepper in oil until tender.
  3. Beat eggs until blended; add black pepper and crushed chili flakes. Pour into skillet with onion and green peppers.
  4. Cook over medium heat. As mixture begins to set at bottom and sides, gently lift cooked portion with spatula so the uncooked egg can flow to bottom. Avoid stirring constantly.
