(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 corn tortillas
  • 3 tomatillos (small green tomatoes)
  • 1 medium red tomato
  • 3 green peppers
  • 1/2 cup grated white Cheddar cheese
  • salt - to taste
  • cooking oil
Add oil to your hot frying pan.

Cut tortillas into 2 inch strips.

Fry the tortillas until mildly crispy (not too crispy). Transfer to stacked paper towels to drain off excess grease.

Boil tomatoes and peppers, then blend until they are well chopped into small pieces. Add salt to this mixture to taste.

Begin scrambling eggs in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add tortilla strips and continue scrambling.

Once the eggs have cooked, add your sauce and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for about 10 minutes, then add cheese on top.

Let the cheese melt, and you're ready to serve!

Southwestern flavors intermingle in this scramble of eggs and home-crisped tortilla strips with spicy tomato sauce and cheese.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank dlohr for this recipe.

Well, that recipe is called miguitas or migas. Second, is CHILAQUILES. I will tell you something about chilaquiles: It is a very very spicy recipe based on fried tortilla, an awesome rich and tasty sauce (the hottest the better), sour cream, cheese, chopped onion and for an extra plus you might add something as 'side dish' just above the chilaquiles and it could be a fried egg, grilled chicken breast, cecina (basically a flat piece of curated meat), or whatever you want. There is a variation of this amazing breakfast called TORTA DE CHILAQUILES... You just need to add a bolillo (freshly baked). You cut the bolillo, discard the crumb and fill it with the chilaquiles, add the sour cream (just a bit), cheese, onion and any complement you want. Some people used to drink a very VERY chilled Coca-cola with this recipe but others use to drink a regular coffee. In Mexico, outside some subway stations (specially those near to office zones) you can find people selling this amazing breakfast for a dollar or so. You can ask for the traditional Chilaquiles or the Torta de Chilaquil.

Hello, it is a very nice dish but this are really called "migas" because the "chilaquiles" don't have eggs, I really love this page because I am always doing the same things for breakfast, until now. thanks.

Belive me I am from Mexico.
