A migas is a Spanish and Portuguese dish originally designed to use leftover or stale tortillas. Over the years, it has been adopted into Tex-Mex cuisine and it consists of tortillas scrambled with eggs, spices, and various other ingredients. This Mexican Migas Brunch Bake simplifies the classic migas and incorporates a few easy Mexican ingredients to make a hearty brunch dish that is quick and easy to prepare. Its also easy on the budget.
Tortilla chips form the base of this delicious brunch casserole; they are coarsely crushed and topped with cooked chorizo sausage, crisp crumbled bacon (packaged saves time), and chopped green onions. Beaten eggs are poured over all and the dish is topped with pre-shredded cheese and bottled salsa. The dish can be assembled the night before and popped in the oven to bake in the morning. Nothing could be easier.
