Miga Tacos

One of my most favorite breakfast tacos are migas with beans and cheese.  Not to be confused with beans and cheese with migas.  Migas with beans and cheese focuses on migas more than beans and cheese.  Bean and cheese with  migas focused on bean and cheese with only the slightest amount of migas.  

Ingredients (per one taco)
Corn Tortilla
Flour Tortilla
Two Eggs
Spicy Refried Beans, warmed

Whisk two eggs with a dash of salt, set aside.

Dice corn tortilla into 1" squares and pan fry in skillet on high heat until dry.  Tortilla will take on some browning and get slightly crunchy edges.  To same pan, add eggs, cook and set aside.

Heat tortilla on skillet until warm on both side.  Spread one heaping dollop of beans, add migas (egg and corn tortilla mixture), top with cheese and salsa.  

Scaled for Likeability: Great
Migas are not difficult to make, just a little time consuming.  And let me tell you it is time well spent.  Depending upon regional location, migas may or may not contain a mixture of peppers, onion, and jalapenos, may be referred to as chilaquiles or migas chilaquiles.  What is important is fried corn chips with eggs.  

My migas are just corn tortillas and eggs.  My miga tacos are crunchy corn tortillas, soft fluffy eggs, warm spicy refried beans, melty cheddar cheese, and cold fresh homemade salsa all held together in a perfectly tender and slightly chewy flour tortilla.  It is wrapped up goodness.

Better Than Campbell's Old Fashion Vegetable Soup

Went to the store with the hopes of gathering fresh produce for soup. With more than 45 people in line for two packages of any meat product and the produce section containing only avocado, orange, and most randomly, strawberries, I settled upon canned soup.  Well not canned soup since that section was still void of food, too.  Instead soup made from canned goods as the canned vegetable section had been mostly restocked. Soups like this 15 Minute Vegetable Soup  are ideal in dire food situations such as current times. Modifications Made: Plain petite diced tomatoes omitted, frozen carrots instead of canned, green beans and corn undrained, peas omitted (gross, nasty little pods), one cup celery, three cups diced potatoes, one can tomato sauce, two beef and two pollo de tomate bouillon cubes, six cups water.  Once onions were softened, carrots/celery/potatoes/juice of green beans and corn, sauce, bouillon cubes, water were added and allowed to simmer until carrots almost tender.  Green be

Papas a La Mexicana (Ranchera)

It  is a crying shame that there are six hens and not a egg in sight. What am I supposed to do with homemade ranchero sauce? Thankfully with a few quick searches of the internet a recipe from my hometown newspaper was discovered: Papas Ranchera . Not once in the thirty years I lived in my hometown did I ever eat at a local food joint serving papas rancheras. No time like the present to remedy this cultural dish. Because this recipe is hidden behind a paywall (grrr...) I have included it here for you: Servings: 4-6  Ingredients: 1 pound potatoes, diced 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1/2 large onion 1 1/2 medium tomatoes 3 jalapenos 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup juice from canned tomatoes Instructions: Fry potatoes in vegetable oil until lightly browned (about 4-6 minutes).  Saute onions, tomatoes, jalapenos until soft.  Add garlic powder and salt. Add tomato juice until vegetables are covered (may need to add water).  Bring to a boil and then add potatoes.  Cover and reduc

Sour Cream & Chive Scalloped Potatoes

Can't believe the Month of the Potato is over.  There are so many more potato recipes saved.  Guess I will have to work them into another month. Last week's scalloped potatoes were one of the best new recipes during the month of potatoes.  With today being the last day in the Month of Potatoes, I decided to go out with a bang by cooking another batch of scalloped potatoes but this time sour cream and chive.   The Best Scalloped Potatoes , or so they said. Modifications Made: Recipe was reduced by half.  Mayo was omitted and one entire package of chives were chopped and added to sauce before pouring onto layers. Scaled for Likability: Good Betty Crocker Sour Cream and Chive Box Scalloped Potatoes were the standard for this recipe.  These were a family favorite for years but have long since been discounted.  Bummer.  Trying to replicate this seemed easy enough.  Alas, it was not. These had a nice texture but were too oily from the cheese and did not contain enough onion, garlic,
