I can't wait to share this deliciously satisfying Migas recipe with you. It is a breakfast I have been making since way before I met Mr. Fearless Dining...but I will save that story for another day :-).
Migas were an Austin tradition that my friends and I shared, and we all loved having a migas breakfast together on the weekends. We gathered at each other's house on Sunday mornings to cook breakfast together. (Okay we were single back then so mid-day was probably more like it!)

Migas are considered a traditional Mexican breakfast where you cook corn tortillas and then scramble in eggs and other ingredients in. I have always included chorizo because it adds so much flavor to this dish.
If I don't include chorizo, my son complains because he shares my love of Mexican food :-).

Feel free to adapt this recipe and add to it. I often add chopped green peppers and other vegetables to change things up every now and then. You can even use the corn tortillas to make migas tacos out of the migas!
I chose to use Cacique® Panela Cheese in this migas recipe because it is mild and crumbles beautifully into this recipe. This cheese is fresh, so it will keep 3-5 days after you open it.
Cacique® Panela Cheese is made with milk does not contain rBST so you can feel good serving it to your family. (You can also use their Manchego cheese if you prefer to have your cheese more melted.) Learning how to make migas is so easy!
First, chop up fresh cilantro, cherry tomatoes, and jalapeños.
Open up the pork chorizo and add it to a pan with diced onions. Cook on medium heat until it is cooked.
Add in the corn tortillas, egg, tomato, salt, and pepper. Cook on medium heat until the eggs are starting to cook.
Add the Cacique® Panela cheese crumbles. Continue to cook until the cheese melts and the eggs are cooked.
Add in the fresh cilantro and toss to cook it in. Serve it on a plate and drizzle Cacique® Cilantro Lime Sour Cream on top!

I buy that exact brand of chorizo! This is almost like breakfast nachos ... I love it! I would even make this for a breakfast for dinner type meal.
I love that you can get this chorizo as pork or beef so anyone can enjoy it.
I've never even heard of Migas! Thanks for the introduction! I totally agree with your son that the chorizo is the way to go!
LOL, he will love that there are more chorizo fans out there!
Oh my gosh, this is the best Mexican comfort food! I can't wait to make it again!
