Take You Over

Mexican Style Quiche

International Incident Party

Greetings from the state that Mother Nature is trying to destroy, first an earthquake and now a Hurricane.  I’m not sure why we have been blessed enough to have two events in one week, but so far my house is standing and my power is on!

I was fortunate to travel to Mexico many years ago with my Girl Scout troop, and have fond memories of many of the dishes.  When coming up with ideas I went thru a number of the more basic ideas, such a huevos rancheros or a breakfast quesadilla.  I had done my first quiche a few months ago, for the Simple and in Season challenge, and for some reason I thought it would be fun to try a Mexican twist.  This is easily one of those dishes that can be changed and adjusted based on personal taste, as written it has a slight kick but nothing too powerful.

Ingredients:

  • 5 corn tortillas, burrito size
  • 1 cup corn off-the-cob
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 green chiles, diced & deseeded (optional)
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 and light grease a 9in pie pan.  Lay the tortillas in the pan, going up the sides and slightly overlapping.  Rip as needed.  Bake for 15minutes, until start to brown.
  2. Meanwhile cut up the vegetables.  Mix the eggs with the milk and set-aside.  Take the shell out of the oven and add the vegetables in layers before pour the egg mixture over top.  Bake for 35 minutes.
  3. Remove the quiche from oven, add the cheese, then return to oven and bake for a final 15minutes.  Use a toothpick to make sure the center of the dish is full cooked. Serve with Sour Cream and/or salsa and Enjoy!

One of my favorite things about quiches is that they are great hot or cool, so a great make ahead dish when expecting early company: human or hurricane.

  1. Love your intro, it draws the reader in, though it’s no laughing matter to experience all that. This quiche looks delectable, something I could definitely sink my teeth into!

  2. I love quiche, and you are right it is so adaptable to so many flavors. Great interpretation! And I am glad you weathered the storm – I can’t believe we didn’t even lose power!!
