San Jose Quiche

Recipe by breezermom

A Mexican Twist on a Quiche! No crust, you use tortillas. This is a fun brunch entree.

We liked this recipe, but felt it needed more flavor. The second night I served it with enchilada sauce over it and that made a big difference. I would make it again, but adding tomato paste to the meat and adding some salt. It took about 20 ounces of whole green chiles to fully cover the two layers. I will definitely make again with these changes. Thanks for posting Breezermom.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the first 7 ingredients in a skillet. Cook until meat is browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain the grease from the skillet. Stir in salsa. Set aside.
  3. Place half the tortillas in the bottome of an ungreased 11 x 7 x 2 inch baking dish. Spread half the meat mixture over the tortillas. Place half the green chile strips over the meat mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Repeat the layers once.
  4. Combine eggs and milk. Pour egg mixture over the baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until eggs are set and lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
