I’m not a big fan of eggs. I find them a little too bland and rubbery on their own, and yet when mixed with the right ingredients they can be a delicious meal, like scrambled eggs with avocado and salsa. Now I’ve found another scrambled egg dish with flare: Migas! In this dish, eggs are mixed with tortilla chips, vegetables, and plenty of cheese. There are so many other flavours and textures going on that the eggs are barely recognizable as eggs. Tony actually mistook them for couscous at first. Unfortunately he doesn’t like couscous, so anything that remotely resembles it will turn him off. Still, this aversion didn’t stop him from eating three helpings of migas! Cole was very reluctant to try any of it, but he finally did and really seemed to dislike it so I didn’t make him eat any more. Bennett wasn’t overjoyed with this meal either and mostly just picked at his plate. So this wasn’t a totally successful meal, but I thought it was a nice change from plain old scrambled eggs.
1 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
4 oz mushrooms, chopped
1 red pepper, diced
1/2 cup salsa
3 cups baby spinach, or chopped spinach
4 large eggs

8 egg whites
1/4 cup milk

1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp ground pepper
2 cups crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onions, mushrooms, and peppers and saute until softened. Stir in spinach and salsa. Cook until spinach leaves soften. Stir in crushed tortilla chips. Reduce heat to low.

Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, chili powder, cumin and pepper. Add to vegetable mixture. Fold mixture gently as eggs cook. When eggs reach desired consistency, remove from heat and serve immediately, garnish with shredded cheese as desired.
