Chiles Rellenos Quiche Recipe

Chiles Rellenos Quiche Recipe

To me, nothing sparks up a meal more than the smoky flavor of roasted green chilies. This is a quick and easy recipe, and I usually have the ingredients on hand, so when I don’t know what to fix for dinner, I make this quiche.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 to 4 drops hot pepper sauce, optional

Directions

  • 1. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 350°.
  • 2. Sprinkle cornmeal over bottom of pastry shell. In a small bowl, combine cheeses; set aside 1/2 cup for topping. Add chilies to remaining cheese mixture; sprinkle into crust.
  • 3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, sour cream, cilantro and hot pepper sauce if desired. Pour into crust; sprinkle with reserved cheese mixture.
