Mexican Migas

Kim Biegacki


Well as you can tell by now, I am missing Texas again. Since I canned two batches of homemade salsa I was thinking about what recipes I love to have salsa with & I had to share this one with you all.

When I lived in San Antonio, Texas and stayed with my friend Mona's Mom (Lupita) this is a breakfast she would fix quite often. I love the crunch of the corn tortilla mixed with potatoes and the heat of the spices. Mix in the cool fresh salsa, cilantro and sour cream and it is a breakfast made in Heaven.

The tater tots and some spices are my addition to this wonderful dish.

How to Make Mexican Migas


  • 1Add your oil and butter to your frying pan and wait till it's hot and then add your torn corn tortillas and tater tots. Cook till tortillas are nice and crisp.
  • 2Meanwhile mix eggs, cream, chilies, seasonings all together and mix well with a fork. Pour over the corn tortillas and tatertots. Cook till done. Then plate, add your shredded cheese and let melt. Next your salsa, sour cream, cilantro, green onions and a dash of salt and pepper. Ready to eat.
  • 3Add some fresh salsa if you can it makes all the difference. You can always make your own in a small food processor or that "bullet blender" they show on TV. LOL

    (I haven't made enough salsa yet to post my own recipe but when I do I'll be sure to post. This salsa that I posted was made with delicious yellow tomatoes.)
  • 4I wanted to share a picture from years ago of Lupita, my friend Mona and Me taken while I was living at her home in San Antonio, Texas.

    I miss them all & hope they are well.
