Migas, or really delicious Tex-Mex style eggs
1/4 cup pico de gallo, salsa, (or combination of finely diced onion, peppers and tomatoes)
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips, plus more for garnish
2 eggs, well beaten and seasoned with salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup shredded cheese (Mexican blend or colby-jack recommended)
chopped cilantro for garnish
In a small saute pan coated with cooking spray over medium heat, combine pico de gallo or salsa and crushed tortilla chip. Stir to combine. Pour in eggs and allow to set, folding ever so gently (do not stir and only fold as infrequently as possible. Basically, you just want to push a section of eggs once they've set toward the middle and then tilt the pan so that the runny part gets to run onto the pan) until eggs are fully set but not dried out. Sprinkle cheese over top of eggs, reduce heat to low and cover just until cheese melts (1-2 minutes). Remove from pan and transfer to a plate. Top with more crushed tortilla chips and chopped cilantro to garnish.
