The Difference Between Chilaquiles And Migas
By ERIN SHAW
Chilaquiles and migas are Mexican dishes that are delicious, filling, and use a corn tortilla as a base before loading it up with eggs, sauces, and toppings. Because of their similarities in flavor, texture, and ingredients, diners may confuse these dishes for one another, but chilaquiles and migas are prepared in different ways.
To make migas, cut a tortilla into strips and fry them in oil until golden brown, then add any desired veggies (like peppers or onions) before adding eggs and scrambling them into the mix. Once the dish is done cooking, add toppings like queso fresco, cheese, cilantro, onion, or salsa, and your migas are ready to serve.
Meanwhile, chilaquiles use tortillas cut into chip-like shapes and fried in oil, then salsa rojo (red) or verde (green) is poured on top to soften them. Once the salsa-bathed chips are on the plate, cheese, cilantro, onion, and even avocado can be added as a garnish before topping it off with a fried egg or two, rather than scrambled eggs.
