Mexican Conquistador Quiche Recipe

Conquistador Quiche 


1 lb Italian sausage or 1 lb chorizo sausage

1 (4 ounce) can green chilies , chopped

1/2 cup chopped onion

4 large eggs

3/4 cup milk (I like cream, makes it richer) or 3/4 cup cream (I like cream, makes it richer)

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

deep dish pie shell

sour cream

shredded lettuce

tomato , cut into wedges


Poke holes in the crust with a fork and pre-bake 10 minutes. Fry the sausage with the onion and spices until the onion is tender. Layer meat, green chilies and cheese into crust. Mix eggs and milk/cream together in a bowl with a bit of salt. Pour over meat mixture in the crust. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until a knife in the middle comes out clean. (Cover the crust edges with foil if it is browning too dark). Cut into wedges and top with lettuce, sour cream and a tomato wedge. Serve with salsa if desired.
