Gluten Free Easy Migas in a cast iron skillet with corn tortilla chips

Gluten-Free Easy Migas Recipe

Migas is originally a Spanish/Portuguese dish involving leftover bread soaked in water, garlic, paprika, and olive oil with bacon or chorizo, but there are also Mexican and Tex-Mex versions of this dish, which is what my Gluten-Free Easy Migas Recipe is more reminiscent of. This version uses corn tortilla chips, diced onion and peppers, and is vegetarian.

Rather than making your own tomato salsa and homemade tortilla chips, I’ve used a few shortcuts to be able to call this Easy Migas! I used Xochitl’s gluten-free tortilla chips and salsa verde in the recipe and served it with extra chips and salsa on the side.

Wake up your taste buds with this delicious gluten-free breakfast!
