Here is one you can use for breakfast, brunch or even dinner. It also works great for a potluck. It offers variety because you can change up ingredients for the whole dish or just half of it. Quiche is actually very easy to make too! Here is a favorite that has been around my Mom’s house for many years!
What you need:
1 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped green chili
3 cup shredded cheese – Mexican blend is my choice
1 cup chopped ham or sausage
6 large flour tortillas
butter or margarine
How to make Mexican Quiche in a Tortilla Crust:
Preheat over to 375
Lightly spread butter over the bottom and sides of a 9 by 13 baking dish. Put 2 tortillas on each side and a half of one at each end. Use a little more butter to sort of paste together the edges of the tortillas to seal the bottom layer.
In a mixing bowl, beat the 12 eggs. Blend the milk and sour cream in a blender until smooth and combine with the eggs. Fold in all the cheese. Just so you know, you can substitute the sour cream and milk if needed by using just 2 cups milk. Pour the mixture into your tortilla crust.
Carefully sprinkle the green chili (decrease chili, or only put on part if some are not as fond of spicy) and meat into the quiche, arranging it however you want depending on who likes what. The one shown above has chili throughout, but the ham is only in half of it. Bake for 40 minutes or until eggs are set. Just don’t overcook.
You can have fun changing up what you add. Broccoli, onions or spinach would be some choices for sure. It will keep in the fridge for a few days, and heats up well. Microwave will work, but you can also stick a piece in a toaster oven or oven for about 20 minutes at 300.
It really is a big hit at potlucks!
