Tortillas with Eggs

My mom has me hooked on the combination of scrambled eggs with green chilies! Sometimes I crave it, which is what led me to this recipe for Tortillas with Eggs. It’s a great breakfast or brunch dish and can easily be doubled or tripled to feed more people. You can also get creative and add other ingredients to the scramble: diced tomatoes, cooked chorizo, cheese, etc. Yumm!  

Tortillas with Eggs
-recipe from Bon Appétit Magazine

This dish is a twist on chilaquiles, a tortilla-based hash. It’s great served with salsa for breakfast. Serves 2.

1 tablespoon corn oil
3 5- to 6-inch tortillas, halved, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips
4 eggs, beaten to blend
1/4 cup canned diced green chilies
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)

Heat oil in heavy medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add tortillas and stir until softened, about 1 minute. Add eggs, chilies, and cilantro. Stir until eggs are softly set, about 3 minutes. Season with hot pepper sauce, salt and pepper.

    Need to try this with my son. He’s 11 and always trying to give me tips on what to add. Can’t wait to see what he comes up with for this. 🙂

    This is one of my favorite breakfast foods. We call this dish migas, and in addition to salsa, grated cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese is good on top. Good for you for sharing….people will love this recipe.

  4. Yum, I make this too. I have not added the green chili part, yet. I sure will next time. Thanks for visiting.
