Adventures in Food: My take on migas

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so I’ve heard. I truly do love breakfast, important or not. If there is a better thing than bacon, I don’t even want to know about it.

Migas is one of my favorite things to make for breakfast. It is super flexible, I usually just use whatever veggies I have lying around or leftover from dinner.

Today, I happened to have some chopped tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and spinach leftover from a taco bar we had a few nights ago. Perfect time for a quickly made, filling breakfast. You can use any type of corn tortilla, or even tortilla chips.

I personally love Mission Uncooked organic corn tortillas. I find them in my stores butter and biscuit area. If you don’t have tortillas, just crush up some chips.


Flexibility is the name of the game here. Migas is usually made with peppers and tomatoes, but you can use any veggie that appeals to you. Your imagination is your only obstacle.

I threw some cherries on my plate this morning, because cherries are everything.

Migas for One

1 egg

1 tortilla cut in strips/or a handful of tortillas chips (If using uncooked tortillas, cook them as directed before slicing in strips)

3 tbs of chopped vegetables (onions, tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapenos, carrots, spinach) experiment and mix and match

1 tsp Cooking oil (coconut, olive, a little grease from cooking bacon first)

salt and pepper to taste

Toppings if desired (cheese, sour cream, plain yogurt, salsa, avocado, cilantro are just a few ideas)

  1. If you made some bacon, wipe the pan out until there is a little grease left to saute your veggies. Otherwise, add cooking oil of your choice, or spray with cooking spray. Toss the veggies you want to use in on medium low heat. If using tomatoes or spinach, wait to put them in. Let the veggies soften for a bit, 3-5 minutes.
  2. If using tomatoes and spinach, throw these in now, saute for about a minute and add in the egg. Season with salt and pepper and mix the egg well. When the egg about half set, throw in the tortillas strips or crush the chips over the top and continue stirring and cooking until done. Remove to a plate. Top with cilantro, salsa, cheese, or avocado.

What do you like in your migas?
