Whole family really liked it.
I made this, however I cut the recipe in half making one quiche. I used chicken I had cooked in my slow-cooker with tomato paste and chili powder and cumin. I used less cheese and made a taco seasoning (salt free) which I found on this site. Very delicious warm, and found out today it is equally as good cold. I would eat this for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Oh, and I just tossed all the taco season in with the chicken instead of using 1/2 in the egg mixture. Left out the olives and green chilies.
Our favorite quiche recipe by far. Tonight I made this for the second time, using half the seasoning because I found it too salty last time. And I only have Mozzarella cheese in hand. It turned out to be gooey goodness, and not as salty.
cherstad you may want to get a thermometer for your oven. Having grown up with quiche as a standard dish for the dinner table, and now having an adult child of my own having quiche as an often meal, I can tell you that there is no way it should have taken 80 minutes to cook, especially at 400! Your oven must be off. I have never had to bake a quiche for more than 45 minutes tops even at 350.
