Mexican Quiches - Mini-Sized

Mexican Quiches - Mini-Sized created by SweetsLady

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.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • CRUST: In a small bowl, cream the cream cheese and butter together; add flour and beat until moistened.
  • Shape into 24 balls.
  • Cover and chill about 1 hour.
  • Press into bottom and a little way up the sides of pan.
  • FILLING: In each muffin section (use mini-muffin tins), sprinkle a rounded teaspoon of cheese on top of unbaked crust.
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of green chiles on top cheese.
  • In a small bowl, mix together eggs, milk, salt and pepper; spoon egg mixture evenly over chiles in each section.
  • If you like them hot, sprinkle a few crushed red peppers on top of each section, or lightly dust with cayenne pepper.
  • Bake for about 30-35 minutes until just slightly golden on top.
  • Let stand 5 minutes before removing from pans.
  • Serve warm, but also good at room temperature.

    Great! I served these at my Cinco de Mayo party, and they were a hit. The crust on these is made quite similarly to one called for in my great-grandmother's recipe for tiny quiches, so I made it that way (Recipe #297274). Thanks for a keeper!

    The crust was buttery and delicious! I did have to add another egg to have enough filling. There was lots of cheese which we really enjoyed! Thanks, BeachGirl!
