Whole30 Migas ScrambleThis Tex-Mex loving Texan lives for a good Sunday Brunch Migas Platter. Migas is a traditional Mexican breakfast dish consisting of tortillas cut into thin strips and fried in a griddle until almost crispy, combined with a combination of peppers and onions and cheesy scrambled eggs. They are just to die for. And so is this Whole30 Migas Scramble.

So here is a very unauthentic version, but it gets some of the yummy flavors across without the use of tortillas or cheese. This is a Whole30 version, after all! This rendition of Migas is definitely one of my favorite things to make on a Sunday morning for my family! So, if you’re wanting something festive and fun for breakfast, try this one out! And served with a big cup of coffee, a side of salsa and avocado… you just can’t go wrong.

  1. 1/2 red bell pepper, diced small
  2. 1/2 green bell pepper, diced small
  3. 1/2 white onion, diced small
  4. 1/2 jalapeno, seeds removed and minced
  5. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 2 tbsp. ghee
  7. 8 eggs
  8. 1.5 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  9. 1 tsp. nutritional yeast
  10. salt and pepper, to taste
  11. Cilantro, for serving
  12. lime wedges, for serving
  13. Avocado slices, for serving
  14. favorite salsa, for serving (if desired)
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the ghee and let melt, swirl pan so ghee evenly coats the skillet.
  3. Add the onions, bell peppers, jalapeno, garlic and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Saute until tender, about 7 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, crack eggs in a large bowl and add 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast. Using a fork, whisk vigorously until the eggs are well combined and a little foam forms on the top.
  5. Add the chicken to the onion and pepper mixture, saute for 2 more minutes.
  6. Reduce heat to low. Pour eggs into the skillet. Cook eggs over low heat, pushing the eggs to the center of the skillet with a rubber spatula occasionally, until the eggs are just cooked through, about 5 more minutes.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve with fresh cilantro and a wedge of lime with sliced avocado. Top with salsa of choice, if desired.
  9. Enjoy with a hot cup of coffee for best results 🙂
