MigasMigas means crumbs. Migas are popular in Texas and can be found on many breakfast menus. Use your left over tortilla chips to make this quick and easy dish. Makes a great weekend breakfast, brunch or supper!

Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup green (tomatillo) salsa
2 plum tomatoes, diced
6 (6-inch) corn tortillas halved, cut into thin strips
12 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup queso fresco, crumbled

Cooking Directions:

  1. Coat 12-inch nonstick skillet with ovenproof handle with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot.
  2. Add salsa and tomatoes; cook and stir 2 minutes.
  3. Add tortilla strips; stir to coat.
  4. Cook 1 minute.
  5. 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.
  6. Sprinkle cheese over eggs.
  7. Broil 6 inches from heat source until cheese softens, 2 to 3 minutes.
