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


  1. In a bowl, combine the eggs and salt; stir with a wire whisk and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. Add the egg mixture to the skillet and cook for 1 minute without stirring, until the edges of the eggs are set.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
