Helpful hints

  • Try the DaVita.com low sodium Salsa Verde to serve with Migas. If using commercially prepared salsa verde look for the brand lowest in sodium.
  • For a higher protein breakfast add extra egg whites.
  • If desired, add chopped onion, jalapeno pepper, garlic or cilantro for extra flavor.
