From Pioneer Woman Cooks:
Unless you’ve visited or lived in the Southwest, you probably haven’t heard of migas, an exceedingly flavorful scrambled egg dish made fabulous with bell peppers, onions, cheese and fried chopped corn tortillas.
In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs and half and half. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
In a small skillet, fry the corn tortillas in canola oil til just barely crisp. Don’t overbrown. Just fry them til they’re no longer floppy. Drain fried tortillas on a paper towels then put on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut tortillas into strips.
In a skillet over medium high heat, cook onion and bell peppers in olive oil and butter til they develop a little color. You want them to have some brown and black color but not be soggy or soft.
When eggs are cooked, throw in cheese and plenty of chopped cilantro. Taste to check the seasoning, add more salt and pepper or cheese if needed. Top with a dollop of sour cream and serve on a plate with orange slices or other fresh fruit.
