Poor Man’s Migas

Excuse the redundant title of this recipe, but this is truly a shortcut for people who love migas, but need to fix a quick breakfast.  I threw this together this morning and it was done in 5 minutes!  I’m thinking about making it again tomorrow.  A few little tips on this.  First, your tortilla chips are very important.  I use a thicker, heavier brand such as La Sobracito.  I am convinced that if you use Tostitos, you will not appreciate how close this recipe comes to migas.  Second, the salsa should be a tomato salsa that is fairly thin and has a lot of onions in it.  I save time by not cooking and sauteeing fresh onions with this recipe, so a good oniony salsa is key.  This version will fill you up for 245 calories (without tortillas).  A quick and tasty breakfast!

(Recipe is for 1 serving)


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 ounce tortilla chips, crumbled
  • 1/2 ounce shredded cheddar cheese
  • Spicy salsa to taste
  • 2 flour tortillas, warmed (optional)


  1. Warm skillet over medium heat
  2. Beat eggs
  3. Crumble tortilla chips into eggs
  4. Add cheese to mixture
  5. Pour into skillet and immediately add salsa to taste
  6. Stir continually and until almost dry
  7. Serve on warm tortillas or on a plate.  Add more cheese and salsa on the tortilla if you wish.
