Author Notes: Literally, crumbs or scraps, migas are the genius breakfast of some Mexican brainiacs disguising chips and salsa into a delicious breakfast. Migas are a great use of the bottom of the tortilla chip bag or some stale crumbs that you found in the back of your cupboard hidden behind the seven pound bag of chocolate chips. Migas are a Texas staple and one of the amazing foods that have become necessities since I became a resident of this great state.OB Cookie

I cut a corn tortilla in to strips about a quarter inch wide, 1 and a half inch long. Cook some, your choice, of sausage, saving the grease. Cook the tortilla strips in this and seperately, also the pico. A short cut is to saute pico de gallo. Mix up your eggs before gently pouring in the skillet. Add your shredded cheese, to taste. Cook to just set, serve and enjoy. Serves as many as you have made provisions for.

This was a simple and tasty recipe that I altered a bit: I made fresh salsa that had onions and garlic in it so I skipped step 2. Yummy!

This was a really simple and tasty recipe that I altered a bit: I had fresh salsa on hand so I skipped step 2 as onion and garlic were already in the salsa. Yummy!
