Gluten Free Migas – Super Fast!


Gluten Free (& Super Fast!) Migas

plate of gluten-free migas
So don't throw away that bag of tortilla chips because there are just crumbles at the bottom -- save it for this quick meal! This is a dish which is synonymous with my childhood. Surprising fact about sweet mama is of Mexican heritage. I inherited her dark hair, dark eyes, and lack of height. And then I got my fair skin from my father who is really tall and has white blond hair! Anyway, my great-grandmother came to live with us when I was born and passed away when I was 8 years old. Grandma Mate' didn't speak any English and was just the most precious thing in the world. She made this dish for me all the time...she called it chilaquiles, but most people know them as migas. This is one of those meals that is good any time of day because it's so fast and easy! Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's still one of my favorite meals of all time.
