Chorizo Quiche

"I had a pie crust to use and some black beans, so came up with this recipe. Be sure to use the Mexican style fresh chorizo, not the Spanish smoked & cured variety."

  1. If I'm using a frozen unbaked pie I let the crust thaw before filling and baking the quiche?


  1. Great quiche! I cook the chorizo in one pan, so I can leave more grease behind. I slow cook my onion in the other pan. Sometimes I add a diced bell pepper, and cook that for a while. I add the beans late, just enough to preheat them and mix them. I usually add cilantro because I grow it and like it. I skip the salt and pepper because the chorizo has enough for us. I put my cheese on last so I can get a golden crust of cheese on the top. We love this quiche!
  2. This was delicious! It was the first time using chorizo where I didn't take the grease out and it wasn't too greasy. I only used 1/2 can of black beans but next time I will use the whole can. The eggs were so custardy. A very rich and decadent breakfast.
  3. Turned out great! Made my own crust and it was so good! Left the beans out tho cuz i didnt have any.


I have a degree in archaeology from a small Ohio college and I work for the Ohio History Connection. My passions are art, music, books, food, history, and cats/animal welfare. I also love photography. I have a 1,000 (plus) piece collection of vintage flower pins from the 1960's, hence the username ha. I also have small collections of vintage butterfly pins, vintage tablecloths, and vintage glass Christmas ornaments. (Can you tell I love vintage?) I took a trip to the Netherlands in March 2006 and fell in love! I doubt it will happen but if I ever have the opportunity I would love to live there.
