I have been making these for years, as my husband is Mexican. We break the corn tortillas into chuncks and fry in a bit of veg. oil till a little crispy, then add egg mixture and cook until eggs are done, flipping once. We use all sorts of leftovers to make this, hot dogs, chorizo, sausage and bacon. My husband even tried it with leftover pizza leaving out the corn tortillas, the crust subbed for that and it was very good!

This is not migas recipe. Corn tortilla should be fried and eggs should be scrambled. I did not care for this.

BismillahirRahmanirRahim This was great! I left out the onion and ham, and added some pepperjack cheese and salsa and a dash of chili powder and it was nuts. Tossing in a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies is even better than salsa, if you plan ahead or are the kind of person who happens to have that kind of thing laying around.

This is just different from the Migas that I grew up with, so I suppose I am biased. I prefer the Tex-Mex flare of adding green chilis, fresh cilantro, cheddar cheese, and chunky salsa! Served with black beans. Yummy!

I probably did something wrong, but this wasn't very good. Maybe it's better scrambled, but I thought by the wording of the recipe that I was supposed to just let the eggs set. I added mexican seasoning and topped with cheese, but I ended up throwing it away :(

This was quick and easy. Served with salsa as suggested....no leftovers.

I don't like corn tortillas at all so the 3 stars is Husband's rating. As written, it's ok but pretty boring - salsa, tomatoes, jalepenos etc would really liven it up. I might sprinkle the eggs with cheese next time too.

These were so simple & delicious! Especially served with hot salsa and toast. We all loved them.
