Tex-Mex Migas

Mexican Migas is a traditional breakfast dish consisting of fried corn tortillas pieces cooked together with scrambled eggs. Here in Texas we do it a little different by including onions, peppers, tomatoes and cheese.

The fried tortilla pieces give the scrambled eggs a fun crunchy texture, while the peppers, onions and tomatoes burst with flavor. It is the perfect way to use up any leftover tortilla chips.

This recipe provides a little bit of spice, but don’t be afraid to add more jalapeno if you love heat. You could even punch it up with some serrano peppers as well if you are brave enough.

We traditionally serve it with a side of refried beans and fresh homemade tortillas. I love to take a tortilla with a little bit of the beans topped with the migas. A hearty flavorful breakfast that you will want to have every day of the week.
