Migas, which means “crumbs” in Spanish, is a Tex-Mex egg dish that is well known throughout the Southwest. This version can be made with tortilla chips, but if you have some stale corn tortillas, it’s a great way to use them up. The dish makes for a tasty, easy brunch that needs only fruit and fresh, warm tortillas on the side.


Cook chorizo in large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until browned, 6 to 8 minutes.


Add onions and cook just until they start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in eggs, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring, until eggs just begin to set, about 2 minutes. Stir in cheese, cilantro and tortilla chips. Cook, stirring, until eggs are set but not dry, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve topped with sour cream.
