My husband and father-in-law are nuts for migas. I first had them when visiting San Antonio and must say they are very good. I think they are usually served for breakfast but we eat them for dinner. Posted 9-16-04

We love this recipe in our house! i often use old corn tortillas instead of chips and just mix them right in as it is cooking. This recipe is in my keepers binder. Love it!

I enjoyed the migas recipes posted here at Zaar. I used this one combined with another to please my family's palate. I used the corn tortillas I had instead of chips. VERY TASTY!

I can understand why you husband & FIL are nuts for this recipe - Deeeelightful. This recipe would be great for buffet just put the tortilla chips on the side so they stay crisp. I used fresh Jalapeno and cut the recipe back to 3 eggs. Made it for brunch today served wi th Korean Mushroom Kebobs and hash browns - Wonderful Brunch Thanks Nurse Di for a winner Nove 08 2009 This recipe is so good I could have it every Sunday for brunch. I made it with 2 eggs for one serving used Lite Havarti cheese (cut back) and only 6 chips scattered on top just before serving Mmmm delish
