Reviews for Tex-Mex Quiche
"Wasn't crazy about this. I found it to be too salty, yet lacking something. Won't make again."
"This is one of my new favorite breakfast meals. Thanks for sharing it."
"FYI - The recipe is correct. 4 ounces of cheese is 1 cup. (The 8 ounces that you see on your measuring cup is for liquids, volume. It does not measure weight ... like for cheese)."
"Would love to try this recipe but am confused about the amount of cheese - do they want a cup (8oz on each of my measuring cups) or do they want 4oz which is 1/2 cup?Advice?"
"LOVED THIS RECIPE!!!!Made it twice in the same week.The second time I added a bit of cumin and Kraft hot habanero cheese - it was delicious and spicy."
"I would like to know do you stir the flour and cheese mixture into the eggs?"
"Shortie got it right: "....but to really make it a Tex-Mex meal I added some browned chorizo to it....gotta have meat." Chorizo and I have a 'problem,' but I'll just eat a few Tumms to get the Heart Burn under control."
"Awesome, but to really make it a Tex-Mex meal I added some browned chorizo to it....gotta have meat."
"Very good and tasty will keep it in my recipe box and will make it again."
