Baked Mexican Migas

This is my take on the traditional Migas where eggs are scrambled and are made in a skillet. My version has similar ingredients but I bake it for the ease of cooking and presentation.

Enjoy !

To Serve 4

6-8 Large eggs
1 cup chopped red onion
1 med tomato seeded and diced
1-2 green chillies chopped
1 cup of cheddar cheese grated (split in two half cups)
1/2 cup of chopped cilantro + mint leaves
1 cup of crumbled bacon (cooked) or chorizo sausage
1 ear of corn roasted in the oven or grilled (split the kernels using a knife holding the corn lengthwise)

10-12 fresh corn tortillas
salt, black pepper and cayenne to taste

Beat eggs and all the ingredients except the tortillas and one half cup of cheese.
Roast the tortillas on an open flame till you see some color. cut them into 1/8
wedges or strips. Split into two parts.

In an ovenproof shallow dish, spray some OO and layer one part of the tortillas in a single layer. Slowly pour the egg mixture. Layer the remaining tortillas and sprinkle the rest of the cheese.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 30 min.

Serve with sour cream and salsa.
