Have you ever made the mistake of perusing food blogs too early in the morning, before you’ve had your breakfast? Dangerous stuff: Suddenly you’re drooling on your keyboard and telling a growling stomach to pipe down. If you want to avoid this situation you had better not take a look at the most recent post on Homesick Texan. I’m not sure your empty tummy could withstand the temptation of “Migas in the Morning.”

For those uninitiated in the ways of migas:

This dish of eggs scrambled with fried corn tortilla strips, salsa and cheese is ubiquitous in some of the Texas capital city’s most popular breakfast spots … I have fond memories of spending lazy mornings in this bustling Congress Avenue diner, scooping spoonfuls of the crunchy, cheesy eggs and bacon-laced refried beans into fluffy flour tortillas. There’s no better way to start the day.

Take my advice, read this post only on a full stomach—with the intent of writing down the list of ingredients for your own initiation into the morning ritual that is migas. You have been warned. Any keyboard drooling or tummy growling will be your own fault.
