1 medium red bell pepper
6 large eggs
4 large egg whites
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons olive oil
4 (6-inch) corn tortillas, cut into 1/2-inch strips

How to Make It
Cut bell pepper in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil 10 minutes or until blackened. Place in a paper bag; fold to close tightly. Let stand for 10 minutes. Peel and chop.
Combine eggs, egg whites, cilantro, and salt in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add tortilla strips; sauté 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, garlic, and jalapeño; sauté 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add roasted bell pepper and egg mixture; cook 2 1/2 minutes or until eggs are set, stirring occasionally. Divide egg mixture evenly among 4 plates; top each serving with 1 1/2 tablespoons salsa and 1 tablespoon cheese.
Migas has become one of my favorite breakfast items after moving to Texas. I have had it for brunch at a couple of Mexican restaurants, and so when I saw this recipe for it I was elated. I had been making my own version, but had been omitting a couple of ingredients that provide it much more authentic flavors. Migas is really like a deconstructed breakfast burrito, but I think that it has more complex flavors than the burrito. This one got all thumbs up at the morning table. Treat yourself and make this super-fantastic breakfast dish.
