In this dish, you are limited only by your imagination. You have a world of ingredients to choose from. In addition to the ingredients called for in this recipe, some additional possibilities for enhancing your migas are: Crispy cooked and crumbled bacon; Chopped ham; Crumbled chorizo (Browned before you add the eggs); Cooked, shredded chicken or turkey; Grated or diced potatoes (sauteed until tender before adding the eggs; Poblano chiles; Green Bell pepper; Your favorite hot sauce; Green onion; Cayenne pepper (a dash or so); Minced garlic. As long as your dish contains the requisite tortillas, you will still have migas. Of course, if you omit the tortillas, you'll still have a delicious, satisfying dish, but you won't have Migas.

Directions

  3. Warm the butter and olive oil in a heavy skillet.
  4. Add the tortilla pieces and saute until softened.
  5. Add the chopped onion and sauté until it is transparent. Stir in the chopped green chiles.
  6. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, and "scramble" until eggs are done.
  7. Remove the skillet from heat, and sprinkle the chopped tomato, avocado, cilantro and cheese into the eggs, again stirring well.
  8. Serve at once with warm flour tortillas. Garnish with additional salsa and crema or sour cream.
  9. For the Crema:.
  10. (MAKES JUST OVER 1 CUP).
  11. Gently stir together the whipping cream and buttermilk in a small non-reactive bowl. Loosely cover the bowl, and allow it to sit at room temperature between 8 and 24 hours until thickened and tangy.
  12. Stir well, cover and refrigerate.
  13. Crema will keep for at least one week.
