  1. Cook bacon in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until edges begin to brown. Pour off drippings.
  2. Add potato; cook and stir until potato is tender and browned and bacon is crisp, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Pour eggs over mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking - pulling, lifting and folding eggs - until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  4. Stir in pico de gallo; heat through.
  5. Sprinkle with cheese.
  6. Serve with tortillas, if desired.
