Migas – My new favorite way to eat scrambled eggs

Migas my favorite egg dish

 

When I was in Boston in February (hint: Boston has terrible weather in February!), I had Migas for the first time ever.

Oh my!  This scrambled egg dish is the perfect comfort food.  It helps that I associate it with having lunch with Jim in a very, very small corner deli.  While the snow piled up outside, we were warm and cozy sharing lunch together.

I’ve made Migas several times since returning from Boston.  It’s a very easy recipe to make.  In fact, you really don’t need a recipe at all.  There are a million ways to make it.  I’ve cooked giant skillet-fulls for lots of people.  And I’ve made it just for one for my own lunch.

Migas consists of scrambled eggs, tomatoes, onion, peppers, corn tortillas and cheese.  I did a little searching online and found that you can either fry the tortillas to make them crisp or leave them soft.  I chose the soft method for two reasons.  First, that’s the way I had them in Boston.  Second, it’s easier and quicker.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. This sounds very good. We will have to try.

  2. For those who prefer their tortillas crunchy instead of soft, a great shortcut Is to use broken pieces of tortilla chips. Fast, easy, & no cleanup!

  3. That looks tasty. Good on a cold snowy morning in Boston. We lived outside of Boston the first 3 years we were married and lived through some memorable snows. We took a trip out there this fall. There is no prettier place than New England in the fall. I hope you had some good seafood.

  4. That sounds absolutely delish!

  5. I live just northeast of Boston. I enjoy the snow, but not always the cold, if that makes any sense… March is my least favorite month around here.
