migas recipeWhen I am brainstorming ideas for recipes, I always ask my husband what he would like for me to make. Ultimately, he is the one that ends up eating it, so I try to be accommodating. For the longest time he always responded with “chicken satay.” Always. I roll my eyes and laugh. For 3 years, I have heard chicken satay every time I asked. The funny thing, I have never made satay to post here. I sort of feel bad about it, I should make it for him soon.

Anyway, I tell you this because now he has a new answer for that question. You guessed it, migas. His migas obsession started when he ate them at place that we love to have brunch at in Old Town called Bittersweet. He has been training to run his first marathon and stops at Bittersweet after his Sunday long run for migas. In fact, that is what he wants when he crosses the finish line this weekend. Needless to say, when he asked, I finally made them for him. I used a recipe from Aida Mollenkamp that I adapted slightly. I love the salsa that is part of the recipe. I added some habanero, and think that this recipe might be my new go-to salsa recipe. The habaneros add a floral note, and are not too hot.

This recipe might seem a little complicated, but it can be made in steps. You can fry the chips and make the salsa the day before if you want to. I made everything at the same time and it took me about half an hour. It was totally worth it.

    This looks like such a perfect brunch dish. I’m pretty sure if I made this for my boyfriend, he would also want it all the time!

    He will! I normally would never go to that much trouble for breakfast, but well worth the effort.
