Mighty Migas!

My brunch food of choice for what seems like years has been eggs benedict.  It doesn’t matter how many times I have it, it makes me happy.  A few weeks ago I took a trip to Austin with some friends.  We had brunch on South Congress street.  They did not have eggs benedict, but they did have Migas.  I have had Migas before, actually the first time I had them was in Austin probably around 10 years ago and I remember falling in love.  But my passion for eggs benedict quickly took over, and migas were forgotten. I think mainly it was because other than Austin, I am not sure I’ve been any where that serves them.  Eating them again for the first time in years made me realize I’ve been missing out.  So I have taken a break for awhile from eggs benedict and replaced them with migas.  I figured it couldn’t be too hard to make them, after all with eggs and tortillas, not much can go wrong, throw in some salsa and you’ve got a meal worthy of brunch time.

Here is pretty much everything you need: cheese, salsa, onion, green pepper, eggs, avocado (if desired, and it should be), garlic tomatoes, and olive oil.

I start by gathering all the ingredients I want to chop, and to be truthful I don’t really measure.  I chop some garlic and onion and the tortillas and throw them in the pan with some olive oil ( and a little salt and pepper).

I let the tortillas fry until they get some nice color. This means they will be a little crispy, which for me gives the migas their texture.

After the tortillas are done I add the eggs and scramble.  Then I mix them together, then I add the peppers and tomatoes. I stir everything together for a while to sit for a couple minutes so that the tomatoes and peppers get hot. Finally I top it off with a bit of cheese and immediately remove it from the pan.

Oh! I forgot to say, I love cilantro!!!  It’s the best part! So if you love it too, add it and some avocado and salsa on the side.  I am now wishing it was breakfast time and not time to sleep…I might need a snack before bed.
