Recipe Step-By-Step Directions:

Chopped cilantro, tomatoes and jalapeños on a wooden cutting board.

Step 1: Grab a cutting board and a sharp knife. First, wash and chop the fresh cilantro, cherry tomatoes, and jalapeños.

Cooking chorizo and onions in a frying pan.

Step 2: Open up the pork chorizo and remove the chorizo from out of the casing. Toss the casing in the trash.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the chorizo to a pan with the diced onions and a tablespoon of oil. Cook on medium heat until the chorizo is fully cooked and the onions soften.

🔑 Sandi says: As the mixture cooks, chop the chorizo into small pieces.

Adding egg and tortillas to the frying pan.

Step 3: Add the corn tortillas, egg, tomato, salt, and pepper to the pan. Cook on medium heat until the eggs are starting to cook.

Adding in the cheese crumbles to the frying pan.

Step 4: Add the Cacique® Panela cheese crumbles. Continue to cook until the cheese melts and the eggs are cooked. Mix and stir with a wooden spoon so the eggs cook evenly.

Adding cilantro to the cooked migas in the frying pan.

Step 5: Add in the fresh cilantro and toss to cook it. Serve it hot on a plate and drizzle Cacique® Cilantro Lime Sour Cream on top!
