Tex-Mex Migas

Photo: Oxmoor House

"Migas" means "crumbs," and that's just what this dish is--small bits of tortilla, cheese, salsa, and eggs scrambled up into one of the Southwest's signature specialties. A staple of the Lone Star State, migas can also be found in Mexican breakfast spots across the country.
