Migas Lite for 2

"So much Tex-Mex food calls for lots of oil and high fat foods. This was a recipe that I found on a pack of corn tortillas. I adjusted the recipe and this is the end result. Hope you enjoy! Update: 05/23/3009: This recipe was submitted to TOH and was published in the 2009 version of The Best of County Cooking. It is also on the TOH website: http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/Tex-Mex-Scramble."

    This made a delightful Sunday Breakfast! I subbed 4 extra-large eggs in place of the egg substitute and topped it with a bit of cilantro. Served alongside a cup of Mexican Coffee we were energized to start the day! Viva Las Reynas! Made for ZWT . Thanks Paula.

    After learning your recipe was published I had to try it to celebrate for you. I wasn't disappointed, but I never am with your recipes. This was easy to put together, utilized leftover roast, and best of all was a flavorful breakfast. Way to go PaulaG! =)

    Great breakfast! Flavourful and easy. Really a 'it hit the spot' type of meal. Took a cue from Rita and also added a little garlic for extra flavour. Served with hot, buttered toast and lots of tea. Thanks, Paula.

    Wow! Delicious! I am a huge fan of Migas, I am practically addicted, and this was a great way to prepare them in a healthier way. A couple of subtitutions and additions: I did add some taco chips to the mix and used ground hot sausage. Topped with Jalapenos and green jalapeno sauce, it made for a wonderful Breakfast. Thanks Paula!


I came to this site in March of 2004. It was then called Recipezaar. This site was the first on-line site that I ever joined. I first popped in 2003 while searching for a Peach Cobbler Recipe. In March of 2004, DH was having shoulder surgery and I was looking for a Split Pea Soup. Once again I found myself on Zaar as it came to be called. Over the years I hung out and learned from some of the best home cooks in the country, I posted over 700 recipes on the site, reviewed over 3500 recipes and posted over 3000 food photos. Over the next 10 years the site made many changes and in 2010 it was sold to to Food Network and became Food.com. Until last year we played games, talked and shared with one another. As a result of the community and the relationships I built I got to meet some wonderful people from all over the country. I also have a great number of friends that I have never meet face to face. Some of us still hang out at various places across the net. Zaar was more than a cooking community. It was an internet community of friendship. Life is an adventure ever changing.
