Migas are traditionally made with pan-fried corn tortillas, but seeing as I’ve been running around all morning putting up Gala Gala Hey! fliers and have to work in a couple of hours, I opted for thin tortilla chips instead.


– 3 eggs
– 1 handful Tortilla Chips
– 1/2 small Purple Onion, chopped
– 2 small Yellow Peppers, seeds removed, chopped
– 1 Jalapeno Pepper, seeds removed, minced
– 1/3 cup Monterey Jack, shredded
– 1 Tbsp Half & Half
– 1/2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
– Fresh Cilantro, chopped
– Salt & Pepper to taste


Add olive oil, onion and peppers to saute pan on low/medium heat. Saute until soft. In a bowl, whisk eggs and half and half together until incorporated. Add to pan, season with salt and pepper and begin to scramble the eggs. Break a handful of tortilla chips into the egg mixture and toss together. Once eggs are close to being done, mix in cheese and cilantro. Serve hot.

This morning I stopped in Transmitter Park in Greenpoint to catch the amazing view of Manhattan. Tomorrow will be my 3rd anniversary of living in New York and it was great to have a few quiet minutes to think about how impactful my time here has been. Without sounding like a big pile of mush, I feel really lucky to have experienced so much over the last few years – both good and bad – and running this blog has been an important part of that. Thank you from the bottom of my sappy heart for reading!
