Breakfast for Dinner – Ole!
When I don’t really want to cook, but I do want to cook I cook breakfast. It’s generally quick foods, laden with either sugar or protein. I wasn’t in the mood for French Toast (although remind me to have a serious discussion with you someday about Nutella Stuffed French Toast because it’s A-MA-ZING!).
My go-to breakfast order when we go out on a Saturday or Sunday morning is not sugar laden…it’s Mexican. It’s Migas. Oh my how I love Migas. I don’t speak Spanish, I have NO clue what Migas means and frankly, I don’t care. All I know is that it’s the perfect blend of eggs, veggies, spice, cheese and tortillas. When it’s paired with refried beans Migas is happiness on a breakfast plate.
So. no real actual written out recipe…but Migas. yum…..
I started out by crisping up several corn tortillas in a cast iron skillet.
Once the corn tortillas were crisp, I diced onion, bell pepper and jalapeno and drained a can of Rotel tomatoes. I would have used fresh tomatoes and diced green chiles, but I didn’t have any green chiles and really wanted them in there….hence the can of Rotel. Don’t judge. I cooked.
I sauteed all the veggies next. I did sautee the jalapenos separately from all the veggies because the weeone doesn’t like the heat (yet – I’m workin’ on her!) and that way I could just add the jalapenos to just my Migas at the end.
While the veggies were sauteeing I took out all of my aggression on 6 poor, innocent, helpless eggs. It made me feel better. ;D I also added a bit of milk to the eggs. You know, habit. Then the eggs went into the cast iron skillet with the veggies and I mixed it all up while the eggs cooked.
Once the eggs were fully cooked, I mixed in the previously crisped tortillas (well the pieces the weeone broke them into for me!)
Last but not least….Monterrey Jack Cheese. You don’t need a lot, but you need some. It makes it all get along somehow.
I topped it off with some salsa and nestled it onto the plate next to refried beans. Ole!
The weeone asked for seconds….need I say more?
