Make

  1. Heat a large skillet or frying pan with first part of oil over medium- high heat. Add tortillas and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown and very crisp, 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Transfer tortilla strips to a paper towel-lined plate and return pan to heat.

  3. To heated pan, add second part of oil. Add bell peppers, onions, jalapenos, and garlic and saute until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

  4. Pour eggs over vegetables and scramble until nearly finished cooking.

  5. When eggs are nearly finished cooking, add cheese, beans, and then tortilla strips to pan. Gently fold everything together, letting eggs finish cooking with the tortillas.

  6. Once eggs are cooked, remove pan from heat and gently fold in salsa (or just serve over top). Top with cilantro.

  7. Divide migas between serving plates and serve with extra salsa. Enjoy smoothie on the side.

This was a completely new combination for me. I was happy to have some eggs, and they were very good with the cheddar (can't find cotija here so I use cheddar instead). I'm not quite sure about the toasted tortillas, that was a little strange for me, but overall it seemed like a balanced meal and was satisfying to eat.

I wasn’t super excited for this and it was delicious! So much better than expected. I did the tortillas in the air fryer.
