Migas Ingredients

4-6 ounces of Mexican chorizo, removed from its casing

5-6 eggs, scrambled in a bowl

½ -¾ cup mild cheddar cheese and/or pepper jack, shredded

2 pieces scallion, thinly sliced

Pickled jalapeño rings

Migas Directions

  1. Turn on stove, if using, and individually char the tortillas on both sides over the flame. If using a cast iron or stainless skillet, place over high heat and char the corn tortillas on both sides. Set aside until cool enough to handle and cut into strips.
  2. Add a little olive oil or vegetable oil. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat, add chorizo. Cook, while breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon, until brown, crumbly, and cooked through.
  3. Add a few spoonfuls of the tomatillo pico de gallo and cook for a few minutes. Using your spoon or spatula, make a well in the middle and add the eggs to the middle of the pan. Gently stir as they start to scramble in the pan.
  4. Add the charred and chopped tortillas to the pan and gently fold in the mixture.
  5. Add the cheese and top with a lid or gently cover with foil to help the cheese melt.
  6. To plate, place a portion of the egg mixture on a plate and top with some of the raw tomatillo pico de gallo mixture, scallion, pickled jalapeños and a dollop of the avocado Greek yogurt.
