Tex-Mex migas is a breakfast and brunch staple of scrambled eggs mixed with tortilla chips, sautéed aromatics (such as onion and chilies) and, typically, cheese. Folded in at the end of cooking, when the eggs are almost set, the chips soften to an addictive crunchy-chewy texture. The addition of spicy, tangy chorizo sausage makes a deluxe version of migas. Be sure to use fresh Mexican-style chorizo, not dry-cured Spanish chorizo. Migas loves garnishes. The recipe calls for diced or sliced avocado and pickled jalapeños, but you could offer salsa, Mexican crema (or sour cream), additional cheese or whatever suits you. Warm tortillas offered alongside can be used to make migas tacos, and refried beans also are a great accompaniment.

Tip

Don’t keep the skillet on the heat while you fold in the tortilla chips and cilantro. Take the pan off the burner as soon as the eggs have mostly set into moist curds so they don’t overcook.
