I have been making these for years, as my husband is Mexican. We break the corn tortillas into chuncks and fry in a bit of veg. oil till a little crispy, then add egg mixture and cook until eggs are done, flipping once. We use all sorts of leftovers to make this, hot dogs, chorizo, sausage and bacon. My husband even tried it with leftover pizza leaving out the corn tortillas, the crust subbed for that and it was very good! Read More

This is not migas recipe. Corn tortilla should be fried and eggs should be scrambled. I did not care for this. Read More

BismillahirRahmanirRahim This was great! I left out the onion and ham and added some pepperjack cheese and salsa and a dash of chili powder and it was nuts. Tossing in a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies is even better than salsa if you plan ahead or are the kind of person who happens to have that kind of thing laying around. Read More

This is just different from the Migas that I grew up with so I suppose I am biased. I prefer the Tex-Mex flare of adding green chilis fresh cilantro cheddar cheese and chunky salsa! Served with black beans. Yummy! Read More

I probably did something wrong but this wasn't very good. Maybe it's better scrambled but I thought by the wording of the recipe that I was supposed to just let the eggs set. I added mexican seasoning and topped with cheese but I ended up throwing it away:( Read More

I don't like corn tortillas at all so the 3 stars is Husband's rating. As written it's ok but pretty boring - salsa tomatoes jalepenos etc would really liven it up. I might sprinkle the eggs with cheese next time too. Read More

I'd heard of migas for a while now but had never eaten it let alone cooked it. I've made this twice now and it's pretty good. I made it exactly as written soaking the tortillas for 10 minutes and sauteeing the onions and ham for 5. I also used homemade tortillas (made from "masa harina de maiz"). Like another reviewer said this turned out as a bit of a scramble; I never noticed until just now that the recipe photo shows it served as wedges - I might try that sometime. This made two decent-sized breakfasts for me and certainly offers room for experimentation though it's good as is. Adding picante sauce salsa or the like on top of the results is a must in my opinion. I'll be making this again as it's a good way to use up extra eggs and corn tortillas. Read More
