1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup. Spray with cooking spray or lightly brush with oil and set aside.
2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack eggs into large mixing bowl. Whisk in sour cream, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. When the skillet is hot, add the egg mixture to pan. Using a rubber spatula, gently scrape bottom of pan and fold eggs over to scramble. Remove from heat when slightly undercooked. Add cheese, roasted red peppers, green onions, cilantro, and hot sauce to taste. Gently fold to combine.
3. Warm the tortillas in microwave to ease rolling process. Working with a few tortillas at a time, place a scant 1⁄4 cup egg mixture into the center of each one and roll up into a cylinder. Place the rolled tortillas on the prepared baking sheet, seam-side down, so they are not touching each other.
