B and I woke up this morning to something wonderful: clouds.  Not only that, but it rained last night.  In August, in Texas, that is something to celebrate, so we decided to make migas with Hatch Green Chiles.  I ran to the nearest grocery store for a few things, and he started prepping.  Be advised, if you make the chile salsa for these migas, it will take about three hours to make.

Grocery List for Migas with Hatch Green Chile Salsa:

  • 1 white onion
  • 2 jalapenos
  • cumin
  • garlic
  • chicken stock
  • Queso Cotija
  • milk
  • eggs
  • flour
  • 4 roma tomatoes
  • corn tortillas
  • 5 or 6 Hatch Green Chiles
  • cilantro
  • course salt (B also used Alderwood Sea Salt, so that is an option)
  • avocado (optional)
  • watermelon (optional, to served with migas)
  • black beans (optional, to be served with migas)

Preparation of Hatch Green Chile Salsa, 1st part:

  • Broil chiles for 5 minutes at highest setting.  Take out of oven, flip over and then put back in oven for 5 more minutes.
  • Once charred, take chiles out and put into a plastic bag.
  • Seal bag so that they can steam.
  • Leave in bag for two hours to cool.
  • While chiles are cooling, dice 1 cup tomato, half an onion,  and mince 1 tablespoon garlic
  • Once they have cooled, you will easily be able to remove the skin and scrape seeds out (optional to scrape seeds, depending on how spicy you want the salsa.  B scraped out the seeds, and the salsa was still pretty spicy).
  • Chop off tops of chiles and chop
