Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: I love the unique flavor of chorizo and it goes perfectly with potatoes. I came up with this fabulous quiche while dreaming of a Mexican holiday. I didn't get the vacation but this delightful brunch dish is perfect for an at-home fiesta! Any breakfast sausage can be substituted for the chorizo. You may also substitute any mild white cheese for the Mexican cheese. Ole!!
