How to Make Migas- my way
- If using corn tortillas, cut into 1x2" squares, or tear into bite sized pieces. If using chips, crumble any that are too big to be bite sized. Cut onion to large dice, set aside. Cut jalapeno to smaller dice (after you easily remove seeds and membrane with a spoon), for less heat; set aside. (You can also use a serrano pepper, minced, if you prefer. They are hotter, so caution.)
- Heat oil in a 10", or 12" nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat until oil just starts to shimmer. Add corn tortillas, or chips, and fry tortillas until crisp, 5-10 minutes or so, stirring frequently. (Fry chips until warmed through, 2-3 minutes.) Salt to taste; more for tortillas, less for chips.
- Reduce heat to medium, add onion and hot pepper of choice; continue stirring. When onions become translucent, add eggs, and cheese, if using. Allow eggs to set, flipping so all egg is cooked, but not dry. I use 3 tortillas/1 egg/1 person; 1 cup chips/1 egg/1 person. We like lots of onion and hot pepper, so use what suits you. If you want more eggs holding everything together, do that. They're your migas.
- Serve with beans, boiled or refried, a few slices of avocado, fresh fruit, a hot cup of coffe, and enjoy! Let me know what you think. But DON'T throw your crumbled chips away again. I've even used 2 or 3 different kinds of chips at the same time!!
