Recipe Description
Whenever I visit my relatives in Corpus Christl; Texas, our first stop is a local breakfast joint for steaming platters ofmigas (eggs scrambled with fried tortillas). To make a heart-healthy version of this popular Tex-Mex breakfast, I bake the tortillas instead offrying them and substitute egg whites (or liquid egg substitute) for the whole eggs.
