Plantain chips are a wonderful alternative to corn tortilla chips in this easy and flavorful Mexican breakfast. And since migas are super fast to make, they’re perfect for busy mornings!
Growing up, I was obsessed with going to Mexico. It seemed so exotic and relatively close, if not to our home outside Boston then to Austin, where my mother and I went at least once a year to visit her side of the family. I had a big, dry-mounted map of the world on the wall right next to my bunk bed, and I’d stare at it every night, brainstorming a list of everywhere I wanted to go. Mexico was at the very top.
Every time we went to Texas, I would beg my mom to take me to across the border. The fact that it was less than a five-hour drive from Austin to another country seemed like too good of an opportunity to pass up. I just wanted to eat some delicious food, poke around a little, try out some of the Spanish I’d been learning, and then we could drive right back up.
