I had never had migas before, but had read about them on a couple of blogs. So, when I received Tostitos Artisan Recipes chips as a part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, I knew just what I wanted to make! I used the Pioneer Woman's recipe as a guide. I figured she would be a trusty source, and I had never used one of her recipes before, which I can't believe knowing how popular her blog is! These were really good! In fact, I have already made them twice within a month! Of course, I did cheat by using the Tostitos chips rather than frying my own tortillas. That was one step too many for me, and the Tostitos chips were great! I think Nick accurately described them as "the adult version of Doritos." We received both the black bean and garlic flavor and the fire roasted chipotle flavor. I am not sure that Nick had a favorite between the two, but my vote was definitely for the black bean and garlic. Anyway, on to the delicious recipe...

 Migas (adapted from the Pioneer Woman)

  1. Whit! This looks SO good! I'm going to try and make it next week! Thanks for posting!

  2. Please notice the delicious bacon on the side from Trader Joe's. Migas and good bacon has become an instant favorite!

  3. This looks AMAZING. 12 eggs!? How many servings did it make for y'all?

  4. Natty-
    You should. It is tasty and easy to make! And good protein for Baby N :)

    You and your bacon... we may need to have intervention.

    Yeah, we usually cut it in half. About 2 eggs worth for me and 4 for the hungry hipppo :)
