Mexican Migas

Mexican Migas are famous traditional breakfast made with scrambled eggs, veggies, salsa and topped with loaded tortilla strips.Oh yeah!  you can find all the Mexican goodness in this breakfast. I had this dish first time at 'Cafe De Brazil', then that got me into research some history on it. Though it is known as Mexican dish in Texas, traditionally this is adopted from Brazil, South America. Different parts of the Mexico ( North and South) make Migas with different textures but the ingredients and concept is same. Southern Mexico has more traditionalism to this recipe as it got the influence of Brazil which is close by geographically. And also there are Spanish Migas that are traditional Spanish recipe, but made with Left Over Bread.  So enough History & Geography and let's explore the flavors in this dish. Here you go the recipe, Njoy!

Mexican Migas
Eggs - 4
Onion - 1/2 medium
Bell Pepper - 1/2 ( Green or Red)
Black Bean and Corn Mix - 2 Tbsp ( frozen & Thawed) ( Optional)
Jalapeno - 1
Cheddar Cheese - 1/4 cup
Salsa - 2 Tbsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
black pepper - 1/4 tsp
paprika - 1/2 tsp
Tortilla Strips - 1/4 cup ( crunchy)
Cilantro - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1 Tbsp

  1. Heat the non-stick pan and add oil to it. Once the oil is hot add chopped onion, Jalapeno and bell pepper.
  2. Saute them for 2 min ( they shouldn't be too soft, so don't over cook them) 
  3. Meanwhile, take a medium bowl and break the eggs into it, add salt, black pepper, paprika and whisk together. Pour this egg mixture into the non-stick pan.
  4. Let them cook for 2 min, when the eggs are getting cooked, add half of tortilla strips and cheddar cheese and let the eggs cook with it. When Eggs are cooked thoroughly add the Bean& corn mix, salsa, cilantro and mix it well. Cook for 2 min.
  5. Switch off the stove and transfer this to serving plate and top with remaining tortilla strips. 

Serve this breakfast warm with the side of hot sauce and lime wedges to make your morning spicy and sassy!

Happy Cinco De Mayo, Amigos!
