Breakfast, Lunch or Supper

I am participating at Peanut Butter Etouffee 2nd Annual Pullet Surprise on March 26th, We are to enter a recipe where one of the main ingredients is eggs. So here is my recipe. It is called "Migas", I guess you would consider this a Tex -Mex dish and its means "crumbs" in English. It is bits of corn tortilla with egg and several other ingredients. My grandmother would make this dish as well as my Mom when we were younger. This dish can be made for breakfast, lunch or dinner depending on the ingredients used. This version is the one I use for breakfast. If you want to cook for lunch or dinner you can also add, green chiles, cooked chicken and garnish with slices of avocado, salsa and chopped cilantro.
Serves: 4
8 corn tortillas
5 large eggs
3 Tblsp. canola oil
1/4 c. milk
1/3 c. chopped onions
1/2 cup grated cheddar
1/2 cup grated Monterrey Jack
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
Sour Cream
In a small bowl lightly beat the eggs, add the garlic powder, salt, pepper and milk and beat again and set aside. Stack and cut corn tortillas into small squares. Heat skillet pan with the oil and add the tortilla pieces and cook until slightly crispy. Add chopped onion and cook for 1 minute. Add beaten egg mixture to the tortillas and cook as you would scrambled eggs, stirring the mixture to mix with the tortillas until egg mixture is cooked. Sprinkle the shredded cheese and mix so that it slightly melts. Serve with a dallop of sour cream.
And enjoy.
I also took pictures of the dishes used that I bought at a garage sale, a serving set for 4, however, the cup saucers were missing but it was a bargain for $5.00. I love roses, aren't they cute?
