Eat Well: Migas

DSC_7862

One of the best things about my sister's recent visit was getting to enjoy the delectable things that she cooks up for breakfast. The girl was blessed with an innate sense of what tastes good first thing in the morning, and I have been an enthusiastic benefactor of that talent for a number of years now. While she was in San Francisco, she made us breakfast tacos one morning and migas, one of my all-time favorite dishes, the next. I've written the recipe for migas below - if you ever find yourself craving a delicious Mexican breakfast, give this dish a try!

1) Chop onion, tomatoes, and jalapeños and soften them in a frying pan on the stove over medium heat.

2) Once the vegetables have softened, pour in your scrambled egg yolks and cook until the eggs are just about cooked through (remember: you want to cook your eggs low and slow - low heat is key for delicious eggs!)

3) When the eggs are just about ready to serve, sprinkle cheddar cheese on the top.

4) Meanwhile, cut tortillas into eighths (you'll need ~2 tortillas per person) and fry them in butter and oil. When the tortilla slices are crispy, add them to the eggs and cheese.

In other exciting news, today is my 50th post! In honor of it, I would like to say a very special thank you to my wonderful husband. I absolutely would not be able to write this blog if it weren't for his beautiful food and clothing photography, his wizardry with Photoshop, and his constant, unceasing support of this little project. I love you, baby!
