One-Pot Wonders

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
