Migas Tacos

Migas is a Tex-Mex dish of eggs, corn tortillas, and various other interchangeable ingredients. The word itself means, “crumbs,” in Spanish. Migas is wonderful enfolded in a corn tortilla with refried beans to make a Migas Taco. There are so many ways to make this dish. I always go with what I have on hand in the pantry and fridge.

6 large eggs, beaten

2 oz. chopped green chiles (about 1/2 a can)

1/4 cup onion

1 clove garlic, peeled

1/2+ green pepper chopped

2 oz. cheese of choice

1 cup baked tortilla chips, broken into pieces (Here is a recipe if you want homemade)

1 avocado, cut into pieces and squeezed with lime juice

1 tomato

2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped




In a mini-food processor, combine garlic, green chiles, and onion. In a med. bowl, combine eggs, salt, pepper, and tortilla chips. Heat a small amount of oil over med. heat; add the green chile mixture and chopped green pepper. Cook until green pepper softens- about four minutes. Pour in the egg mixture and “scramble” until eggs are done. Remove from heat. Stir in tomatoes, avocados, and cilantro. Serve with warm tortillas and refried beans.

Serves 4.

  1. Are we related? You seem to lean towards the mexican food as much as I do. For me, it must have been my years in Phoenix. I WILL be trying this recipe!!! :D

  2. I love mexican food as well. When 1st diagnosed with celiac, it was all I ate; it was the easiest thing to stick to gf.

    This looks great, but no matter what I try, I have a hard time with eggs and mexican spices. I am a plain egg girl, I guess. :)

    My husband would love this though, I may have to try it for him. :)

  3. (Oh, and get this, I am posting a Mexican-American dish today too..great minds thing alike!);)

  4. Krista- Haha, What was your favorite Mexican restaurant in Phoenix?

    Slacker Mom- I am looking forward to it! I will head over there later.
