Easy Migas (Tex-Mex Scrambled Eggs and Tortillas) for One

A quick, hearty and reasonably healthful breakfast that will start your day off right.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 green or red bell pepper, diced small
  • 1/2 small yellow onion or 1 shallot, diced small
  • 1 or 2 6-inch corn tortillas, cut into strips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ounce shredded cheddar or crumbled cotija cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Hot sauce


  • Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a nonstick frying pan. Add the pepper, onion and tortilla strips and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender and everything is browned in spots, about five minutes.
  • Beat eggs in a small bowl. Pour into skillet, add cheese and salsa, and give it all a quick scramble, lifting from heat as necessary to cook gently, until the eggs are set.
  • Place migas on a plate and garnish with cilantro and hot sauce to taste. Serve immediately.
