Mexican Quiches - Mini-Sized

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by BeachGirl

Great to have in the freezer for unexpected guests - as an appetizer or brunch. I often make these and freeze (well-covered) in air-tight container. When it's party time, place frozen quiches on serving plate; place in microwave and cook on Reheat setting just until slightly warm. You can take a few or lots from the freezer to accommodate the number of guests. There are never any leftovers. Preparation time includes 1 hour refrigeration.

YUMMY! These were fairly simple to make. And I had everything right in my kitchen to make them, which is always a big plus! I did use cream instead of skim milk. The crusts were nice and flaky. I took them to a party and everyone loved them. Thanks for sharing your recipe Beach Girl. These are going in my permanent file.
