Migas con Chorizo


Easy, inexpensive, delicious breakfast or brunch item that smells great on a Sunday morning. Shown to me by a former Mexican neighbor of mine. I usually make it vegetarian for myself, but with guests, I add a meat, usually sausage or chorizo. Delicious! Always a favorite and a classic in Mexico and Texas!
