Marler's Quick Migas

This is the migas that I make for me and my wife when I'm being lazy and don't want to cook anything complicated, but want more than just scrambled eggs. You can adjust up and down to make more if you are feeding more than just yourself. I find that one single serving bag of fritos is good for up to a half dozen eggs. If you are making more than that, start doubling the recipe accordingly. It's just migas ... it won't blow up if you do it wrong, though I will if you add cheese.




  1. Use your favorite skillet for cooking eggs and heat it up
  2. Take the chorizo out of it's inedible wrapper (you bought the cheap stuff, right? That casing is not edible) and put it in the pan
  3. Chop up the chorizo with a spatula while it cooks until you get it into small chunks
  4. Crack the eggs and put them into a plastic cup
  5. Season the eggs with salt and pepper in the cup
  6. Stir up the eggs with a fork until they are as blended as you like them to be
  7. When the chorizo is done, pour in the eggs
  8. Crush the fritos in the bag, then open the bag over the skillet and dump them in
  9. Add the salsa to the skillet
  10. Add anything else you want to add to cook with the eggs
  11. Stir and chop with the spatula until the eggs are cooked as far as you like them cooked (I like my eggs dry as a Texas drought)
  12. Remove skillet from heat and divide accordingly onto plates
  13. If you have any fresh veggies you want to add for garnish, now is your chance to do so
  14. Enjoy!
