Mexican Conquistador Quiche Recipe


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.
