Recipe: Mexican Quiche

In this blog, I  wanted to share a recipe for some Mexican Quiche I made over the weekend for a family gathering. It is easy to make and quite tasty. Give it a try if you would like.

Mexican Quiche

1-10″ pie prepared pie shell (or use the crust recipe below to make a healthier version ahead of time.)
2 Jalelpeno peppers chopped
1 lb. pork sausage
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup light cream
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp. chili powder

In a skillet, cook sausage with chili powder onion and jalepeno peppers . Stir and crumble to fine mix. Drain off any excess oil. Put in the prepared pie shell. Combine the eggs, cream and cheese. Pour over the meat in the pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Let cool a bit and serve warm.

To make your own crust:

1-3 oz. package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour

In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, butter and flour, until well blended. Place the dough in refrigerator and chill for 1 hour. Roll out dough on well-floured surface, or wax paper to create a 9″ pie shell crust. You will have to roll it out a little bigger (Approximately 2″ larger). Fold the shell in half and transfer to a 9″ pie plate. Using a knife, cut off excess dough and shape the edges using your fingers to form slight curves. Fill the pie crust with your sausage, egg and cream mixture.

Enjoy!
