Migas are different things in different countries. But without a doubt, when we talk about Tex-Mex migas, we’re referring to the delicious combination of scrambled eggs with onion, peppers and tortilla chips, or totopos. The secret to these tasty migas is in the soft and crunchy combination of ingredients. The onion, peppers and tomato should be cooked until soft, and the tortilla chips should be added at just the right moment to stick to the eggs without losing their crispy texture. I love making them with Oaxaca or mozzarella cheese because the melted cheese gives the dish a creamy consistency; however, cotija or queso fresco are good alternatives. Just be sure to add these cheeses immediately before serving. Enjoy! MORE + LESS -
