      Verry tasty! I made these to take over to a neighbor's for wine/appetizers tonight, and it was like a big beautiful pan of delicious quiche (plus, it was pretty easy to put together). It was delicious with hot (spicy) salsa. There were a few glitches on instructions and ingredients, so I guessed at 1 t baking powder, and added chiles after the first part of step 3 (after "add flour and baking powder" and before "adding cheeses and blend into batter'). The taste was really nice - perfect for wine/appetizers. I recommend using room-temperature or slightly warmed salsa to really complement the flavor of the appetizer. Delicious. I'll make it again definitely - would be a standout in a brunch buffet!
