  • Cusine



8 large eggs

Kosher salt

2 plum tomatoes, diced

3 tablespoons vegetable, canola, or peanut oil

1 medium red or yellow onion, diced

2 jalapeños, stemmed, seeded, and diced

1 cup crushed Nacho Cheese-flavored Doritos, plus finely crushed Doritos for granish

3 ounces pepper jack cheese, grated or diced

Freshly ground black pepper

Warmed corn tortillas, for serving

Diced avocado, for serving

Hot sauce, for serving


In a large bowl, whisk eggs with 2 generous pinches of salt and set aside. In a medium bowl, toss tomatoes with a generous pinch salt, then transfer tomatoes to a strainer and set over bowl to drain. Heat oil in a large cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion and jalapeños and cook, stirring, until softened but not browned, about 4 minutes. Add eggs and cook, stirring until curds begin to form, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in 1 cup crushed Doritos and continue to cook until eggs are nearly set, about 2 minutes. Stir in cheese until mostly melted. Add tomatoes and continue to cook, stirring, until tomatoes are warmed through and eggs are just cooked, 1-2 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat. Serve migas with warm tortillas and avocado, if desired, and top with crushed Doritos and hot sauce.
