Chipotle Chicken Quiche

Chipotle Chicken Quiche

Chipotle Chicken Quiche!  This creation came about because my husband Keith loves to "play with his food".  He's one of those cooks who says "hey, let's add a little of this and a little of that" and it cooks up wonderfully!  This recipe is a variation of one from the cookbook Come on Inn to my B&B for Breakfast & Tea: Franklin Street Inn Recipes.  This time, however, I made him write down what he added so we could replicate it for our next cookbook edition.  It's that tasty! 


Chipotle Chicken Quiche: Yields 4 large or 6 small pieces.  

5 eggs- beaten                                                           OPTIONAL:

1 (4oz) can green chillies, chopped                           Chopped onions, to taste

1 c. cottage cheese, small-curd                                 Salsa

1 c. Cheddar cheese, shredded                                Chopped green pepper

1 cup shredded (or cubed) chipotle seasoned chicken  

1 tomato, peeled, chopped and deseeded


Preheat oven to 375.  Combine the eggs and green chilies in a large bowl.  Next, add cheeses and sausage.  Add optional items if prefer.  Pour mixture into a well-greased 9-inch pie pan.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Add deseeded tomatoes to top of quiche.  Bake another 20 minutes.  To check if it is done, place a knife in the center of the quiche   If it comes out clean then your quiche is finished.  Let the quiche stand 5 minutes before serving.    

Serve the quiche with a warm tortilla, salsa and slices of fresh tomato.  Enjoy!!
