Pat kindly provided me with some of her favorite Tex-Mex recipes and this one's a hearty winner. Here's her full version...I'll list afterward what I made for the two of us.

<b>Migas con Chorizo</b> (Pat_Bastrop, TX)

Makes 4 large or 8 small servings:
1 pound bulk chorizo
10 eggs beaten
2 medium tomatoes
1 1/2 medium onion, chopped
8 corn tortillas, cut into 1" squares
2 serrano or jalapeno peppers
2 Tbl chopped cilantro
2 C jack cheese, grated
4 Tbl butter or oil.

In large saute pan, heat butter or oil. Add tortilla squares and saute 3 minutes on med high. Stir in tomatoes, onions, serrano peppers, cilantrol and stir lightly. Add jack cheese and stir.

Serve with fruit, black beans and salsa.

Pat mailed me pre-cooked links of Spanish chorizo.

For 2 large servings:
1 chorizo link, thinly sliced (Thanks, Pat)
4 eggs beaten
2 small canned San Marzano tomatoes
1/2 large sweet onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced
3 corn tortilla, cut into 1" pieces (Thanks, Pat)
a heaping pile of cilantro
a heaping pile of grated cheddar cheese
3 Tbl butter, divided

The only thing I did different was to saute the onions in 1 TBL of butter until soft (neither of us like crunchy onions). Then I added the diced tomates & peppers and cooked it for about a minute. Removed from pan, added 2 TBL butter, browned the corn tortilla squares, added the veggies back in, then added the beaten eggs. Stir gently. Only took about one minute to set the eggs. Sprinkled on the cheese, covered the pan and removed from heat to melt. Sprinkled with cilantro and Hatch Green Salsa (thanks, Pat!) when served.

Served on the side: black beans with diced carrots, onions, and celery...these were leftovers already cooked in the frig (how lucky!).

I almost expected to look out and see the Sandia Mountains from my Albuquerque kitchen know, instead of a hurricane drainage canal.
