I've been a huge fan of the The Pioneer Woman for quite awhile now, but after trying her recipe for Migas I love her about a million times more!
As a Foodie I'm a little embarrassed to say that I had never even heard of Migas before and I'm not really sure how that is possible. I LOVE breakfast and I double LOVE Mexican food so I'm not sure how this tasty dish slipped my radar! (Seriously...as I'm writing this I'm wondering when I could make it again!)
The ingredients are simple:
(The original recipe below makes enough to feed an entire ranch so I just adjusted the amounts to make "Migas for One")
- 4 whole Corn Tortillas
- 1 whole Jalapeno, Seeds And Membranes Removed, Finely Diced
- 4 whole Plum Tomatoes, Roughly Chopped
- 1 whole Green Pepper, Roughly Chopped
- 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Roughly Chopped
- 1 whole Medium Onion, Chopped
- 12 whole Large Eggs
- ¼ liters Cotija Cheese, Grated (may Use Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Etc.)
- ⅓ cups Cilantro, Chopped
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- ¼ cups Half-and-half (I used fat-free milk b/c that's what I had)
In a bowl, whisk together eggs and half & half. Salt and pepper eggs, then set aside.
In a small skillet over medium heat, heat oil and fry each corn tortilla just until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Chop tortillas and set aside.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the olive oil with the butter. Add onions and bell peppers and cook until starting to turn brown/black, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add in diced jalapenos and stir to combine.
Add tomatoes to the skillet and stir around, then add tortilla pieces, stirring gently to combine.
Reduce heat to low.
When the heat has decreased, pour egg mixture into skillet. Gently cook with the peppers, folding (do not stir!) mixture very carefully as it cooks. Add in grated cheese and chopped cilantro, and stir to combine.
Top with sour cream if you'd like!
Eat the entire plate!
So good! They would be great with fruit for breakfast or serve with beans and instantly you have dinner!
Seriously, try them! I promise you won't be disappointed!
