Migas con Huevos

1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium white onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
2-3 green onions, white and green parts, chopped
1 medium jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed and finely chopped
8 eggs, beaten
4 large handfuls of tortilla chips, lightly broken up
kosher salt
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Optional garnishes and sides:
Refried beans
Lime, quartered
Extra tortilla chips

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until lightly browned. Add pepper, green onions, and jalapeño and continue to cook until softened, 2-3 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the eggs in a large bowl and whisk until smooth.  Lower the heat to medium-low, add the eggs and stir to incorporate. Add tortilla chips and gently stir breaking up the eggs to create a scramble. Season with salt, sprinkle with cheese, and serve.
