Nachos for breakfast? I've never even considered that. Until now. Once again, another incredible creation by you. Love these!

OK've out down yourself with this one. So, I haven't tried it yet, but can taste it anyway. Best thing for a brunch with my guy-friends.

Ha! You've discovered the wonderful Tex-Mex breakfast dish called Migas! Legend has it that migas was created to use up old tortillas. The only difference with your recipe and migas is the tortilla chips are crumbled up and spread on the eggs-beans-salsa-chorizo-cheese mixture in migas. No matter how you do it, this is a delicious breakfast--one I had many times living in Austin Texas!

Wow these look so so good.. Only today I was thinking about this kind breakfast!!

Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen said...

Wow! Gorgeous, Kevin! Tex-Mex breakfasts are pretty standard at our house. (It's an addiction.) Now, we simply must try your recipe. Sunday breakfast cannot come soon enough!

It's like you know the way to my heart! I love having cooked breakfasts (though unless it's a lazy weekend, who really has time). AND THEN add in a Mexican twist? I'm so totally there.
