Author Notes: This recipe reminds me of my mom. I grew up with my abüelita (grandmother) cooking traditional Mexican food most nights for dinner. When she was away visiting other relatives, my mom rarely cooked but one thing she often made--when there was literally nothing much in the fridge--were migas. The thing about these migas is that there are only 3 main ingredients--eggs, leftover tortillas, and salsa. Any kind of salsa works but don't try to replace the tortillas with chips! I mean you can, but then they aren't my mom's migas To this day, we often make migas for dinner when neither one of us wants to cook and we don't want to spend money on take-out. If you have left over beans, smash them into a side of refried beans and serve with migas and sliced tomato. Once the tortillas are fried, you can also add onion, garlic, bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach--any veggies can be added into this simple recipe. But, for a dirt cheap dinner, all you need are eggs, tortillas, and salsa! —Chuppie
