The hubby and I loved it~

Used a 9" deep dish pie crust and regular breakfast sausage (Jimmy Dean) a little more cilantro and WOW - excellent.

Was really surprised how easy this recipe was and how quickly it went together and how GOOD it was. My husband liked it too. We'll use it again.

I have just begun to make quiche and this one is by far the best. I was a little leary of what my husband would think of it, but I have ever seen him eat the entire dish of it in one night.

I loved this recipe! But I ate it for dinner since it had a spicy punch. Instead of chorizo, I used chicken italian sausage from Marketday for a healthier, reduced-fat version.

My Husband loves chorizo. I used a basic pie crust recipe, instead of the tortilla. This made it more like a traditional quiche. We loved the recipe, alot of flavor! Mindy-Dallas,Tx

Really good!
