Southwestern Quiche

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. + standing


6 servings

I first made this dish when I was hosting a brunch. The Southwestern flavors really pop when served with salsa and a dollop of sour cream.


  • 4 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 1 pound uncooked chorizo
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salsa and cubed avocado, optional


  1. In a greased 9-in. pie plate, arrange tortillas in an overlapping pattern so that they cover sides and bottom of pie plate, forming a crust. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook chorizo over medium heat until fully cooked; drain and set aside. In the same skillet, saute mushrooms in butter until tender. Add onion, salt and pepper; cook 2 minutes longer.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, half of the cheese, chorizo, cream, tomato, garlic powder and cumin. Stir in mushroom mixture. Pour into pie plate; top with remaining cheese. Cover edges of quiche with foil so tortillas do not burn.
  4. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with salsa and avocado if desired.
