Migas (Tex-Mex Scrambled Eggs and Tortillas)

Migas

This is a Tex-Mex variation of Mexican migas. It includes additional ingredients, such as diced onions, sliced chile peppers, diced fresh tomatoes, or cheese, as well as various spices and condiments (e.g., salsa or pico de gallo).

Migas is typically served with refried beans. Corn or flour tortillas may be used to enfold all of the ingredients into tacos. In some areas, it may have been traditionally eaten during Lent.

Another common variation is to add chorizo to the standard ingredients.

In different areas of Mexico, migas is a traditional breakfast dish consisting of corn tortilla strips fried on a pan or griddle until almost crispy, to which eggs are then added to create a scrambled egg/fried tortilla mixture. This preparation makes use of hardened corn tortillas left over from previous meals.
