This is so easy to make. Don't be dissuaded by the long ingredient list. Some dishes are best with simple ingredients, others are best with tons of them. Great for you spicy food lovers! We make lots of quiches at home, some are very light, airy and fresh tasting. This one leans more towards the thick, dense, and spicy. Very satisfying. Quiche's are great for leftover ingredients you have. Have fun adding more ingredients to this one.
2 links of chorizo sausage, casing removed
1 sweet onion (vidalia, use a yellow onion if you can't find a sweet one)
1/2 of a red bell pepper chopped
1 large clove of garlic finely chopped
1 small can chopped green chili peppers
1/2 small package of button mushrooms, de-stemmed and chopped
1 jalapeno, de-seeded, de-stemmed, and chopped finely
1/4 cup milk
1 pie crust
1 cup of your favorite cheddar cheese, we used white pesto cheddar for this
Saute the first 7 ingredients together until the chorizo is thoroughly chopped up and cooked. Prepare the unbaked pie crust according to directions in your favorite pie pan. Some crusts you need to partially cook before continuing. Pour your sauteed ingredients into the pie crust and distribute evenly. In a small bowl, whip your eggs and milk together and pour on top of your pie crust ingredients. Top with evenly sprinked cheese. Bake uncovered in a 350*F oven for 45-60. You want a nice golden brown crust on this one. Note: It will be rounded in the middle until it cools and it will become flat again, it's just the trapped steam escaping the eggs. Serve hot or cold. Makes six nice sized slices.
Serve with a small salad and some fruit like mango and peaches.
