Tex-Mex Quiche Recipe

I discovered this quiche recipe many years ago, and it's still one of my favorites today. It's quick and easy, yet very tasty. It's also a good dish to take to potlucks or serve as an appetizer. You might like it for a brunch or light supper, too. —Hazel Turner, Houston, Texas

"Wasn't crazy about this. I found it to be too salty, yet lacking something. Won't make again."

"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?

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."

"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."

"I love this recipe, which I have made more times than I remember. I sometimes add crumbled, cooked sausage to it to make it more breakfasty."
