Chipotle Quiche Lorraine

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by ChipotleChick

A Southwestern take on a traditional French meal that dates as far back as the 16th Century! Heads up: This quiche has more of a custard texture than a cheesy egg texture. If you want to "beef it up," I recommend adding another egg and maybe a little shredded swiss.

I added the swiss cheese and some diced jalapeno to make it really spicy. We all love hot food and I was sorry I only made one!
