Mexican Migas: The Non-Spicy Cousin Of Chilaquiles

I always knew when my mom was making migas as a kid. The house smelled of corn tortillas, onion, egg and cheese. It’s a distinctive smell that can not be replaced by any other, and I would say, “Are you making migas?” It seems nothing has changed — now when I make them my family asks me the same exact question and it’s always posed in a hopeful way. I just enjoy seeing the smile on their faces when I say “Yes…. I am making migas!”

    Make sure the egg is cooked before adding in the cheese. 

  • Queso Enchilado 10 of 12
    _MG_0983

    I am seriously obsessed with queso enchilado. I used a combo of jack cheese and queso enchilado for these migas. 

  • Cheesy 11 of 12

    Once the top is sprinkled in cheese, remove from flame and let it sit for a couple of minutes so the cheese can melt a little.
