Migas is a popular Tex Mex egg dish made with chopped corn tortillas, cheese, tomatoes, jalapeños, and onions. I serve it plated with tortillas on the side, but they can also be wrapped in a tortilla, taco style.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 vine tomato (seeded and diced)
  • 1 jalapeño (half diced, half sliced thin for garnish)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro (plus more for garnish)
  • 2 corn tortillas
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and black pepper (to taste)
  • 8 large eggs

To serve:

  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco
  • 4 ounces avocado (sliced)
  • hot sauce or salsa (for serving)

Instructions

  • One at a time, place all 6 of the tortillas directly over the flame of the burner over medium heat 20 to 30 seconds per side, until slightly charred.
  • Set 4 aside on a plate with a dish towel over them to keep them warm until ready to serve, cut the remaining 2 in half, then chop into 1/2 inch thick strips.
  • Place the eggs in a medium bowl, season with salt and pepper, and whisk to combine.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the 2 chopped tortillas and cook, stirring until crisp, about 4 minutes. Set aside.
  • Add the remaining oil to the skillet, then add the onion, tomato, jalapeño, cilantro and season with salt and pepper, cook until soft and translucent, about 4 minutes stirring.
  • When the onion is ready add the eggs and cook 3 to 4 minutes until the eggs are almost set, stirring a few times to scramble, then stir in the tortillas.
  • Stir and cook 1 more minute. Remove from heat and top with cheese, fresh salsa, avocado, hot sauce and cilantro for garnish.
  • Serve with warmed tortillas.
