INSTRUCTIONS

For the Tomatillo Pico de Gallo:

Place onion, jalapeno and garlic in a medium size mixing bowl and generously salt. Add the lime juice and stir to combine. Let sit for at least a few minutes. Add the tomatillos, cilantro, cumin and hot sauce, if using, and set aside.

For the Greek Yogurt ‘Crema’:

Place avocado, lime juice, cumin, Greek yogurt, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor or blender and puree to combine until smooth. Set aside until ready to use.

For the Migas:

If using a cast iron or stainless skillet, place over high heat and char the corn tortillas on both sides. Set aside until cool enough to handle and cut into strips.

Turn on stove, if using, and individually char the tortillas on both sides over the flame.

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat, add chorizo. Cook, while breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon, until brown, crumbly and cooked through.

Add a few spoonfuls of the tomatillo pico de gallo to the chorizo and cook for a few minutes. Using your spoon or spatula, make a well in the middle of the mixture and add the eggs to the middle of the pan. Gently stir as they start to scramble in the pan.

Once the eggs are almost cooked, add the charred and chopped tortillas to the pan and gently fold in the mixture.

Add the cheese and top with a lid or gently cover with foil to help the cheese melt.

To plate, place a portion of the egg mixture on a plate and top with some of the raw tomatillo pico de gallo mixture, scallion, pickled jalapenos and a dollop of the avocado Greek yogurt.

    Not having the ingredients to make the avocado Crema oh, I used a Herdez brand of avocado salsa. Always have it on hand, and it had a just the right touch.

  • I have always followed you, and have watched you since the early 30 min meals. However, I can’t find enough words to tell you how grateful I am for you and John, during this pandemic ! Today as I was reviewing your sheet pan chick meal, even my 8yr old grand daughter said…. mimi, you use a lot of ‘her” recipes don’t you ?!!! Yes I do ! Thank you Rachael !! 💜
