Mushroom & Leek Migas
Migas…they are messy, cheesy, and eggy, loaded with flavor and served piled high on a warm plate with a side of salsa.
Migas are a South Texas obsession, featured in every eatery from up-scale to road side stand.
Migas have become a staple in Texas cuisine AND the variations are endless. From the popular migas con nopales served in McAllen, Texas to the migas con chicharron en salsa verde in Robstown to migas piled over slabs of smoky brisket in San Antonio –Everyone loves Migas.
My personal favorite are the ones papi used to make for us and still does when we head over for breakfast. He dices his corn tortillas really, really small and allows them crisp up just shy of burning, fresh onion, tomato and a few serranos with 12 eggs and we are ready to eat. He loads them up in plates and serves with a scoop of fresh refried beans ~ heaven, pure comfort food.
Today we are mixing it up in the kitchen by showcasing Migas from the new Cookbook New Southwest. These migas have a Southwest twist, so good!

Your migas look great! I love the pop of color you added with the hot sauce and green onion. 😉
I’ve only heard of migas but never tasted it. Sounds good.
