Easy migas are the Tex-Mex way to start your day! Soft and cheesy scrambled eggs loaded up with peppers, onion, and fried tortillas.
Sadly, if you’ve not visited the southwest you may not know about this dish. Migas is basically soft and cheesy scrambled eggs loaded up with peppers, onion, and fried tortillas. Plus anything else you want really. Some people will serve this dish with refried beans, top it with salsa or sour cream. It’s basically all the good things involved in Tex Mex food plus scrambled eggs. Which means we can have it for breakfast.
This is a wonderful dish to make if you have some leftover tortillas. A quick dip in some oil and a sprinkle of salt is all we need to make our own little fried tortilla strips. If you’ve never done this to make your own fresh tortilla chips, I highly recommend it. Serve some up with a little homemade salsa and we’re good to go.
Making your own fried tortillas is the best way to make this dish work. Fry them up before you make the eggs and add them to the eggs after they are slightly cooked. Save some though to add to the dish at the end. That way you have the fried tortillas mixed in with the eggs that are slightly softened and you have some fresh crispy ones to add to the finished dish.
Personally my favorite way to enjoy migas is served on a warmed tortilla with some fresh, creamy avocado. My husband would insist on having some chorizo and refried beans with his to make it complete. Basically, you don’t need to follow my recipe exactly. This is one of those dishes that you can really customize as long as the basics are there.
If you love a good Tex Mex breakfast, make sure you check out my Chilaquiles recipe too. Which is similar, but it’s more like nachos with the fried tortillas soaked in a red chile sauce.
