Migas in a Taco Bowl

My family love eggs. I love them since they are a cheap, fast breakfast, brunch, or supper. When I added tortilla chips to the eggs, the kids thought this was the best thing ever. I thought they would even think it was more cool if they were served in Taco Bowls. I made my Taco Bowls from corn tortillas since they tied with the corn tortilla chips. They are really easy to make. I used these directions but there are even YouTube vidoes.
Migas in a Taco Bowl
4 large eggs
2 egg whites
2 Tbsp skim milk
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
1 tsp butter

1 cup tortilla chips, crushed (I used blue corn tortilla chips)
1 cup Monterey Jack with Jalapeno Cheese
4 Taco Bowls
Optional garnish toppings:  guacamole, sour cream, cheese, salsa, salt and pepper

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, and skim milk. Set aside.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.
  3. Add the onion, red bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the whisked egg mixture to the skillet. Stir well. Turn the heat to medium low. 
  5. Add the butter and cook until the eggs are fluffy. 
  6. Add the crushed tortilla chips and fold in the cheese.
  7. Serve the egg mixture into the center of the taco bowls.
  8. Top with desired garnish.
