I have seen several recipes and variations of a tex-mex breakfast called migas that looked interesting to me. I thought my family would enjoy it for breakfast. It is basically eggs, tomatoes, cheese, and tortillas.
Every recipe I saw was quite a bit different. Some had just tomatoes, some had a homemade type salsa, and some had neither. Most called for corn tortillas that you fried to make them crispy and then added to the eggs. But I also found a few that called for tortilla chips. Some had cheese, some did not. You get the idea. All the recipes varied a lot.
I decided to come up with my own version, based on some of the ones that I saw. Really, I just looked at what I like about each one and made it work for my family. I am sure this would be good if you fried corn tortillas and used them. But I did not want to take the time to do that because I like quick and easy breakfast dishes. I am sure this is not authentic, but we like it a lot. It is fast becoming a new favorite for breakfast in my family. But this would also make a very frugal lunch or dinner.
This is just basic measurements. I don’t really measure it exactly, so you can adjust it to your family tastes.
- 8 eggs, beat well
- ¼ cup salsa
- ½ cup cheese, shredded (I use either cheddar, jack, or combo)
- 1 cup tortilla chips, crushed (I use like 2 handfuls of chips, not sure what that measures exactly)
- Cooked eggs until almost done (you are basically scrambling them).
- Then add the remaining ingredients.
- Cook another minute or so until eggs are done.
- Serve with additional salsa if desired.
