Serve the soup with a dollop of Greek yogurt or sour cream, if desired. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the soup for up to 3 days, or freeze it for up to 3 months.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Serve it with hot pepper sauce, and stir in chopped fresh cilantro and thinly sliced scallions at the table.
Tip: The canned beans and salsa make this dish higher in sodium than most Scramble meals. Occasionally eating meals that are high in sodium isn't a problem for most people, but if you are concerned, you can either use low-sodium canned products instead, or, to counteract the sodium, drink lots of water with lemon and/or eat bananas, as potassium balances out sodium in our systems.
SERVE WITH HOMEMADE PITA CHIPS & ORANGE SLICES
To make homemade pita chips, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut 2 - 3 pita pockets in half, separating the tops from the bottoms, and cut each top and bottom into about 6 triangular wedges (like a pizza). In a medium bowl, toss the pita with 2 Tbsp. olive oil and ½ tsp. kosher salt (optional). Lay the pita wedges on a large baking sheet and bake them for 10 - 12 minutes until they start to brown.
Cut 3 - 6 oranges into wedges for serving.
