To me, nothing sparks up a meal more than the smoky flavor of roasted green chiles. 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. —Linda Miritello, Mesa, Arizona

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


  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge.?Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Line unpricked crust 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°.
  3. Sprinkle cornmeal over bottom of crust. In a small bowl, combine cheeses; set aside 1/2 cup for topping. Add chiles to remaining 2 cups cheese mixture; sprinkle into crust. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, sour cream, cilantro and, if desired, hot pepper sauce. Pour into crust; sprinkle with reserved 1/2 cup cheese mixture.
  4. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

Can you freeze Chiles Rellenos Quiche?

Cover and freeze unbaked quiche. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 350°. Place quiche on a baking sheet; cover edge of quiche loosely with foil. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary for a knife inserted in the center to come out clean.

Combine 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 1/2 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-5 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
