Grab the eggs, cheese, and leftover tortilla chips because we are about to make breakfast Migas Tacos!
If you can scramble eggs, you can make this epic dish. Ready? Watch this:
If you’re new around here and love all things tacos, you’re my kind of people and you just watched how to make taco #47 from the Taco Tuesday Cookbook series! Yes, I am cooking my way through the entire cookbook, 52 tacos total, and so far it’s been a blast.
Before you go browse through the channel, stick around for these Migas, you’ll be so glad you did.
What is Migas?
For those of you who’ve never had the pleasure of Migas, you are in for a surprise! Scrambled eggs with warm bits of tortilla chips and cheese, there’s a reason these are the #1 breakfast at your favorite Tex Mex breakfast spot.
Chips in scrambled eggs? It might sound odd but trust me this is the type of food you need in your life.
The eggs cook into the chips, which stay pleasantly crisp while melted cheese and fresh pico cling to everything, it’s quite the party for your mouth.
Migas is the definition of simple and you most likely have each of these ingredients in your kitchen as you’re reading this:
- Pico de gallo
Of course, you don’t NEED cilantro and avocado, but they both add a little somethin’, somethin’ without overpowering the taste and texture of Migas and cilantro reminds me a little green sprinkles but for tacos.
There are a few things about this recipe that are different from traditional Migas.
First, traditional Migas is prepared with leftover corn tortillas, cut into thin strips, and fried until crispy. That’s cute and all, but I personally don’t care to fry anything especially at the end of the day when all I want is to feed my family a delicious meal as quickly as possible. Just gimme the tacos!
So instead, I swapped the frying part with leftover tortilla chips because:
a.) we always keep those on hand
b.) this recipe is perfect for those last few broken chips in the very bottom of the chip bag.

Another reason this recipe is different from the Tex Mex Migas is the scrambled mixture is usually served with corn tortillas on the side but why beat around the bush?
You know you want to stuff the scramble into a warm tortilla and top with a little extra cheese and avocado so skip the flirting and go for it!
Now, here’s the part where you grab that almost empty bag of chips and the Taco Tuesday Cookbook for the full recipe and make these Migas happen!
