Migas: Crumbled and Mixed Veggies and Corn Tortillas

Migas Mexican Crumbled and Mixed Veggies and Corn Tortillas

I stumbled upon migas a few years ago when I was making Chili Rellenos and didn't think much of it as it seemed like a quick scramble of leftover bread.

However, after reading Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer by Kelly Jones with delightful and quirky illustrations by Katie Kath, I was inspired to make a version of migas myself.

Stale-old almost-stiff-as-a-board corn tortillas got a new life with some colorful peppers and jalapeños, plus chard ribbons.

Sometimes, there's eggs and cheese, plus a side of avocados. And, sometimes, I leave out the eggs and have just the crisped tortillas and veggies.

Migas Mexican Crumbled and Mixed Veggies and Corn Tortillas

1 cup chopped colorful bell peppers
1 japapeño, chopped
½ cup red onions, chopped
1 cup chard, chopped into ribbons
½ tsp smoked paprika
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp cumin powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
¼ tsp brown sugar
salt to taste
3 tablespoons of oil
4 to 6 corn tortillas, cut into bite-size squares
2 to 3 eggs, beaten (optional)

  1. Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in a shallow pan and crisp up the corn tortilla squares and keep handy
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in a separate pan and saute the veggies, adding the spices
  3. Add the beaten eggs, if using, with the veggies and scramble
  4. Toss in the crisped corn tortilla squares with the veggies and the eggs, serve warm
