Ok, so technically, this isn’t migas. I admit that.
However, my husband loves this dish so much – and he calls it “Mel’s Migas”. And that makes me happy. So “Mel’s Migas” is it shall be called.
This is hands-down, our favorite breakfast. And on a day like today, when nothing has gone right (missing chickens, broken bowls, spilled coffee), this meal is my solace.
1 flour tortilla
Tapatio (or other hot sauce)
1 pastured egg
Preheat cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. Melt fat of choice in skillet (I used a tablespoon of lard). Place beans in flour tortilla, covering half of it. Cover with cheese and Tapatio sauce. Fold tortilla top over (like a quesadilla) and grill in cast iron skillet over medium-low heat until beans are warm inside and outside is golden brown. Top with sour cream and egg cooked to your liking (over-easy all the way for me, baby!). I added a smidge of local garlic-cilantro sauce on the side for extra kick.
And there you have it. The breakfast meal that can make a bad morning a whole lot better. Or any meal – I seriously could eat this for every meal, but some might say that was excessive. 🙂
