From EatingWell:  January/February 2012

Migas, scrambled eggs with strips of tortillas, is a tasty breakfast or quick dinner. Poblano peppers, onion and salsa on top ensure you get some veggies in your eggs.

8 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Cook chorizo, onion and peppers in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the chorizo is cooked and the vegetables are softened, 6 to 9 minutes. Remove to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
  2. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the pan; if there is no fat in the pan, add 1 tablespoon canola oil. Add the tortillas and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until beginning to brown and lightly crisp, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk egg substitute, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Once the tortillas are browned, add the egg mixture and the reserved chorizo mixture to the pan; cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are set, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in cilantro. Serve with salsa and more cilantro, if desired.
