Doritos Migas With Pepper Jack Will Rock Your Morning, Hangover or Not

There are days when you wake up and say, I'm going to painstakingly make the best damn Tex-Mex migas I possibly can. And then there are days when you pry yourself from bed, feel your head swirl and split as you sit up, and remember those last two rounds of shots you got roped into—after you had already had what was supposed to be your last drink. On those days, you need these quick and easy Doritos migas. Actually, you might need these on all days. More

Hangover Helper: Migas at Cochineal, Marfa, TX

While many versions rely on greasy eggs or fried tortillas for flavor, Cochineal presents a large pile of gently scrambled eggs tossed with wide, soft strips of corn tortilla.

The eggs are tossed with big pieces of juicy tomato, crisp red and green peppers, and deep purple onions. More

Where even though lines snake out the door, every regular considers the place his own unique find. And where the food is both honest and memorable, worth going back to—and not just because it’s around the corner. These institutions often take years to evolve. But Mike and Patty’s, opened eight months ago on a quiet corner in Boston’s Bay Village neighborhood, seems pretty close already. Its storefront may be tiny—an open kitchen behind the counter, one high table for a friendly six, and hardly enough room to turn around. What Mike and Patty’s... More

Dinner Tonight: Mushroom 'Migas'

There are two rather different dishes known as migas—there's a version from Spain, the original, which is made with leftover bread, garlic, and sometimes a little meat such as chorizo or bacon. But there's also the Tex-Mex style which replaces... More
