Breakfast Burritos/Migas

I love Breakfast Burritos, so when I saw this recipe for Migas on the Pioneer Woman Cooks, I had to try it. After I did, I decided to change it up a little the next time I made it, and instead of fying the tortillas and putting them in the dish, using them to make breakfast tacos/burritos. Usually when I attempt at making Breakfast Burritos it is just some eggs and whatever I happen to have on hand, but these were delicious! Since there are only two of us eating them, and the recipe called for 10-12 eggs, you can either cut it in half or make the whole thing and use it for breakfast all week... they reheat quite well!

*** Note: obviously we used more eggs and less butter than is pictured... but you get the idea

***The picture above is the one I took when I made the Migas - I'll have to take a picture next time I make the Breakfast burritos and update then. ***

***If you want to try the Migas, add the aditional step below
- In a small skillet over medium heat, heat oil and fry each corn tortilla just until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Chop tortillas and add them to the mixture just before the eggs.
