Southwestern Quiche

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This recipe was in a brochure that was included in an order from New Braunfels Smokehouse, a half-century-old Central Texas tradition. The family-owned restaurant, meat processing plant, and mail order business features wonderful hickory- smoked meats and the restaurant is a must if you ever visit New Braunfels!This is great for brunch with a fruit salad or for a light dinner with a side salad.

This is a very tasty tex-mex quiche. The only problem is that the recipe does not specify that you should use a deep-dish pie shell and I only had one regular pie shell on hand (as the recipe suggests). Had a bit of a mess to try and get the necessary ingredients into the pie shell while retaining some of the half and half back. Will try this recipe again with a deep dish pie shell next time. Made for the Zaar Cookbook Tag, November, 2011.
