March is National Nutrition Month—and we have a delicious recipe to kick-off the beginning of spring! Celebrating flavors from cultures around the world is a tasty way to nourish ourselves and appreciate our diversity. We are all unique with different bodies, goals, backgrounds and tastes! This month, we’re featuring a traditional Tex-Mex dish called migas. This version is quick and easy to make, even on busy mornings!
5 large eggs
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 green onions, sliced
2 cups (about 3 ounces) coarsely broken, no-salt-added tortilla chips
½ cup mild salsa
½ cup low-fat, shredded cheddar cheese
Garnish: 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro and extra shredded cheese
- In a bowl, combine the eggs and salt; stir with a wire whisk and set aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the green onions and cook them for 2 minutes or until they begin to soften.
- Add the egg mixture to the skillet and cook for 1 minute without stirring, until the edges of the eggs are set.
- Stir in the tortilla chips and salsa; cook for 2 minutes or until the tortilla chips begin to soften. At this point, the eggs’ texture will resemble traditional scrambled eggs.
- Remove the skillet from the heat and add the cheese; stir until it is combined and the cheese begins to melt. Sprinkle on the cilantro and extra cheese, if desired.
- Nutrition information does not include garnishes.
- Reduce the sodium content of the dish by leaving out the added salt.
