How to Make Tex Mex Migas

To make these, you are going to start by chopping up some corn tortillas and throwing them in a hot cast iron skillet with a tablespoon or two of oil.

Cook them for a few minutes until they crisp up. Then remove them from the pan and set them aside.

In the same pan, add some butter and saute the green onions and jalapeños.

At this point, you can add in any of your other favorite veggies. We love cherry tomatoes, so that is what we added in ours but you can also add in things like poblano peppers, or anything you want.

Mix your heavy cream and eggs together and pour over your veggies in the pan. You can use milk if you like, but we like the taste of heavy cream in eggs. They give the eggs more flavor.

Keep cooking this until the eggs are almost done.

Once your eggs are almost completely done, throw your crispy tortilla strips back into and mix together.

Do not skip this step. You will thank me later because these really make a miga.

Now, you get to add in ALL the cheese. Who doesn't like scrambled eggs without cheese? Not this household. But — you can leave it out if you prefer.

Continue cooking until the eggs are all the way done. This happens pretty quickly.

Then, top with salsa and more cheese if you like!

Now, add some green onions, lime slices and a dollop of avocado cream sauce. It is THE BOMB!

You can make this dish and many others like it. Eggs are so versatile and can be dressed up in so many different ways.
