We bet your kids won’t notice the healthy serving of vegetables in this easy migas recipe—they’ll be too excited about having tortilla chips for breakfast.


  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow sweet pepper

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 8 large eggs, beaten

  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

  • 1 cup crumbled tortilla chips

  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack

  • 3 tbsp sliced green onion

  • tomato salsa, to serve


  • Melt butter in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and yellow pepper and sauté for 4 minutes or until soft and lightly golden.

  • Turn heat to low. Add beaten eggs, pepper and crumbled tortilla chips to the peppers and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally to scramble eggs, for 1 to 2 minutes or until eggs are almost cooked.

  • Add shredded cheese and stir just to combine. Sprinkle eggs with green onion and serve with tomato salsa.
