Ingredients

Directions

  • Sprinkle tortilla chips over eggs; mix chips into eggs. Move egg mixture to the side of the skillet, turn off heat, and sprinkle egg mixture with Cheddar cheese. Cover skillet and set aside until cheese is melted and eggs are cooked through, about 5 minutes.

  • Stack flour tortillas on a microwave-safe plate; microwave until tortillas are warmed, about 30 seconds.

  • Spoon egg mixture onto each tortilla and top with about 1 tablespoon taco sauce.

Tip

Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I used one whole tomato and I sauteed a little fresh minced onion and garlic in the butter before adding the green chilies. Oh my goodness. This was SO good. The kids really enjoyed it too. NO leftovers.

Pretty hearty breakfast and very quick and easy. I added in some minced onion after reading the previous review a great addition. I didn't really care for the crushed tortillas but my husband liked them.

I made this for Recipe Group. I tweaked it a bit - I know I shouldn't but I did - due to what I had on hand. My first tweak was to use some garlic butter that I had in my fridge that needed to be used. I nearly bought tomato yesterday but remembered I had some at home - yellow cherries I was going to quarter. Well I'm not sure what happened to those tomatoes but they're not in my fridge! So I rummaged around in my pantry and found diced tomatoes with green chilies. I did add another tbsp of diced green chilies because I had already opened my can - and it didn't look like there was much in the tomatoes. I did not want to buy a bag of tortilla chips to use 1/4 c. I had just bought some Pringles Tortillas-Southwestern Ranch - so I used those. I did use a little extra simply because 1/4 didn't seem like enough for 6 eggs. I also used extra colby jack cheese. I used up a bag not bothering to measure. My final tweak was to use my favorite corn & whole wheat blend tortillas warming them on my burner - I prefer the taste of tortillas on the burner to tortillas in the microwave.... These were yummy and received high praise from my company (=

Yum I made these Christmas morning and everyone loved them. I use recipes like this to clean out the fridge. I sauteed onion garlic bell pepper and jalapeno for a few minutes and then threw in some leftover ham (didn't have canned chilies or a tomato). Added an avocado on top.

Excellent recipe for a Tex-Mex breakfast. I added in some diced onions and omitted the chips because I didn't have any on hand. A definite keeper. Thanks!

Love that this is a simple basic recipe that can be changed up to suit the people eating. I made the recipe for a work potluck and brought pico black beans sour cream cilantro and hot sauce so everyone could fix em how they wanted. I brought very little of anything home!

Generally good migas: I think the taco sauce is needed. I might add ham or chorizo to it in the future. Putting it on a corn tortilla is a flourish and is really not needed.

Excellent. Just make sure the "taco sauce" is decent salsa & not something from Taco Bell. Besides that suggestion this is the best migas on allrecipes.
