Generally I agree with The Pioneer Woman on most food related issues.
To me though, Migas is not Migas without Chorizo.
Chorizo is really greasy and fatty though. 😦 A local market, I adore Sprouts Farmer’s Market, sells ground chicken chorizo. I decided to give the chicken a try and boy, howdy I’m glad I did. Chicken Chorizo is excellent.
I adapted a Pioneer Woman recipe, I added 1 pound of chicken Chorizo I browned it, drained off the minimal fat and proceeded with Ree’s recipe.
A few things I altered.
- I omitted the Jalapeño, due to a tween with a low spicy tolerance.
- I used 2% milk instead of Half-and-half
- I used cheddar cheese
Here is the original recipe ingredient list.
- 4 whole Corn Tortillas
- 1 whole Jalapeno, Seeds And Membranes Removed, Finely Diced
- 4 whole Plum Tomatoes, Roughly Chopped
- 1 whole Green Pepper, Roughly Chopped
- 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Roughly Chopped
- 1 whole Medium Onion, Chopped
- 12 whole Large Eggs
- 1/4 liter Cotija Cheese, Grated (may Use Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Etc.)
- 1/3 cup Cilantro, Chopped
- 1 Tablespoon Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup Half-and-half
