Since my “fast”from fast foods, I have been fairly good about eating “healthy”. More salads and steamed veggies have graced my plates more often than they did before the “fast”. However, I would occasionally have the slip up here and there. But that was before I rediscovered and old Mexican dish that my Grandma use to make for breakfast. It is called Migas. Migas are a traditional Tex-Mex breakfast dish of scrambled eggs mixed with corn tortillas(I use leftover chips) and salsa or pico de gallo. You can also add onions, peppers, tomatoes, cheese or chorizo.
First you begin with a bit of oil and some tortilla chips. I like small pieces of chips so that I get chips in every bite. Left over chips from a mexican restaurant works best.
Fry them up a bit and then add the salsa or pico de gallo. I used pico de gallo here.
Scramble the eggs and add a bit of milk.
Mix all together, then add salt to taste.
These are also served with a side of refried beans. Didn’t have any beans on hand but I was happy enough with the Migas.
This was so worth going off my “healthy eating” plan. Now don’t get me wrong, eggs are very good for you. Especially if they are the grain-fed, free range, local farm eggs. But I seriously doubt that eating eggs with chips fried in oil everyday for 5 days in a row is a recommended diet for anyone. Maybe I will switch to eating oatmeal for 5 days in a row. Maybe.
