Do you practice lent? Even though I’m not super religious I do practice lent annually. I started as a young girl, you see my 90 year old grandfather practices and he taught me at an impressional age to follow suit. We would go to our local church on Ash Wednesday and get the smeared palm ash in the center of our foreheads, and choose something that we absolutely loved to give up until Easter Sunday. Plus we would NEVER eat meat on Fridays during lent. My grandfather use to make either chile rellenos, shrimp patties, or ensalada de nopales, but there was always a pan of migas made for me. I was still not eating chile at that time and migas are sort of the kid friendly version of chilaquiles, since it’s the same concept minus the chile sauce.
Needless to say I still practice lent, and I still love migas. I made a vamped up version of vegetable migas for my son the other day and he went crazy for them. I sneaked in roasted cauliflower and mushrooms, and to be perfectly frank I couldn’t stop eating them either. Giving up meat on Fridays for lent has never been easier.
