I was surfing the internet to come up with a good recipe made with eggs. This recipe is given by Robert Amaya, who recalls Migas to be the dinner he used to eat as a child. He also mentioned his family used to call it Migajas. Migas is a main dish made with eggs and torn-up tortillas. You can not only have this recipe as dinner, but it also makes a great breakfast.
To cook up Amaya’s migas, crisp the tortillas in a skillet. Then add tomatoes, onion, and chile to the skillet and cook. Pour eggs into this and cook them. As the eggs get cooked partially, add cheddar to it and cover the skillet. Wait for the cheese to melt. Serve hot.
