Oh my God, if you haven't ever made migas do it in the next five minutes. I had just come back from the farmers' market with gorgeous green peppers and starving for breakfast and in the mood for scrambled eggs & peppers with maybe a little grated cheese. Then a tomato butted in, and I knew I had a cut onion in the refrigerator, and some flash of latent genius reminded me that I also had a package of El Milagro corn tortillas (a Chicago staple). Some cut-up everything sauteed in a little butter, the cheese, a beaten egg. Had read about this online, never tried. And I had Trader Joe's Chile Lime Seasoning, best condiment on earth, to sprinkle on. Behold: migas (which in Spanish means "crumbs" eg the chopped-up corn tortillas). They kind of give balast to the vegetables and provide an earthy corniness. Try migas if you haven't already.
