Rach made this twist on migas, a traditional egg-and-fried-tortillas skillet dish, for friends in Italy, and it was a BIG hit. The cheesy casserole would be delish on its own, but it's even better topped with sauteed chorizo, pico de gallo and avocado crema. Rach loves it any time of day, so add it to your file of BLD (breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner) meals!
