Delicious Authentic Migas Recipe
So what if this weekend we try an Delicious Authentic Migas recipe? And how about we add some refried beans with some finely chopped onions on top and sliced avocado slices? Would you like that? I certainly would! Or would you give me a stare of confusion? “Wait Cathy, what is Migas?”
So What is Migas?
First of all Migas is a delicious breakfast treat we should all be treating ourselves to a little more often than not, for sure! But again, wait, what is Migas?
Migas is a Mexican breakfast skillet. The Migas refers to the corn tortilla pieces cooked until crispy and then cooked with scrambled eggs. Migas with eggs (Migas con Huevos) is/can be mixed with onions, tomatoes, chile peppers, rajas (poblano strips), ham or chorizo. Of course along the way some of us may just simply add whatever leftover meat we have in the refrigerator like say chicken but then again this would most likely make this dish Chicken Chilaquiles? Yes I think so!! 😊
Now there are certain variations of MIGAS, for example, in Mexico City, “Migas” is made a bit different! In Mexico City, Migas is a soup made with day old bolillos and then topped with a raw egg that is slowly cooked in the hot broth.
You will also hear the term Migas referring to Portuguese Migas which is a completely different dish and Spanish Migas. Spanish Migas is made differently depending on the region of Spain you are in. But for informative purposes, a Spanish Migas Recipe consists of leftover bread with usually a pork blend of meat.
For this here authentic migas recipe I added kielbasa sausage, tomatoes, onions, poblano peppers, jalapenos, cilantro, monterey jack cheese, eggs and of course the star of this Mexican breakfast skillet, the migas! Then to accompany this already delicious migas breakfast I added refried beans, avocado slices and served it with warm corn tortillas just in case I wanted to have a migas taco!
This breakfast was just perfect!
So give this Authentic Migas Recipe a try and let me know what you think. I don’t believe you will be disappointed! 😊Also don’t forget some hot sauce!
