From Kathleen Purvis’ blog I’ll Bite, at obsbite.blogspot.com:
Facing a busy weekend, we needed a simple Friday night dinner. So I swung by a local Mexican food shop and picked up carnitas and a big stack of fresh corn tortillas.
The next morning, I was casting around for something for breakfast when I remembered all those tortillas. And I remembered migas.
Migas is one of the great Saturday morning breakfasts. It’s probably more Tex-Mex than Mexican, although the combination is such a natural, I bet you find it anywhere you find cold tortillas and eggs.
It’s infinitely forgiving, so you can throw in almost anything. Onions, peppers, tomatoes – whatever you have on hand.
All you really need are a few tortillas – flour will work, although I prefer corn – a few eggs, a little oil, maybe some cheese. The crumbly cheese called cojita is best, but shredded mozzarella or cheddar works.
You end up with something tasty and satisfying that will keep you going through a Saturday of chores.
