I played with this recipe a bit to help it to fit into one pie crust. I cut the milk back by almost half and I used about a half pound of seasoned taco meat instead of a full pound. I did use salsa verde and red bell pepper instead of green. Cutting those ingredients back I had no issue with an overfull crust. I served this with oven roasted home fries. My husband and I thought this was okay my two boys loved it.
This makes a huge amount. More than will fit in a 9 inch deep dish pie crust. I used half the meat half the cheese and still had way too much for the largest pie pan I had which is 11 inches across & l 1/2 inches deep. There was a lot of the egg/milk mixture left over. It makes a tasty quiche but halve the recipe & use a large pie dish.
My family loved this recipe. I filled 2 nine inch deep dish pie crusts and was worried that alot of it would go to waste but it didn't. There was only a couple of pieces left and we ate them the next day as leftovers. Awesome recipe. Thanks!
This was so delicious! My kids loved it too and so easy to make. Instead of using pie crusts and to make it more gluten free, I tore up pieces of corn tortillas and placed on the bottom and up the sides. It does make a lot of filling so I put mine in a 9x13 and baked at 325 for 40 minutes. It didn't need a whole hour to bake. My kids kept coming downstairs asking what smelled so good and couldn't wait to eat. My guests loved it as well. it is a keeper!
Make it G.F.! I took corn tortillas and cut-to-fit a 7 X 11 glass pan. Brush both sides of tortillas with evo or in my case I used bacon fat (yes, not low cal), but great flavor. Bake crust for 5-6 min. In medium mixing bowl briefly whip eggs & milk(I used 4 eggs and 1/4 c. milk). Into beaten egg mixture, I added the prepared taco meat, 5 oz's. bottled salsa with queso(heated slightly so it could be stirred into the mixture), we like things hot--so I added 2 T. fire-roasted tomatoes. Pour this into crust and top with 1/4 c. shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese and place a sliver of jalapeno pepper above where each serving will be. Out of the oven offer chilled toppings of diced tomato, shreds of lettuce & sour cream if desired...Yum! I only baked it 14 min at 400.
I agree with the other reviewer's this recipe makes too much filling. In order to only make one quiche I used the five eggs and them eye balled it for the rest of the ingredients. I only used about 1/2 a pound of hamburger meat and 3/4 cup of milk. My children and I enjoyed the end result but my DH was not impressed.
This was awesome. Instead of following the other reviewers' instructions I decided to spread 2 pie crusts into my enchilada pan and it was perfect for one big quiche. I also used a whole onion because a half an onion is unheard of in my household:) My husband loved this so much I am definitely gonna make it often. I am kind of an amateur cook but am trying to do it more often and this really boosted my cooking ego. My husband said he couldn't believe I made something that tasted this good. Thanks!!
I found this recipe when looking for something to do with a pie crust and left-over taco meat. I sent it today with my husband to work and he and his co-workers devoured it. He said it was "a big hit". I followed other reviewers advise and scaled down the ingredients. I used 3 eggs 1 cup milk kept the green pepper the same at 1/2 c. used 1/4 large onion about 1.5 c. cooked taco meat 2 handfuls shredded cheddar (didn't have mex cheese blend on hand) and 1/2 tomato chopped (instead of salsa which I also did not have). I baked it in a deep 9" pie plate in my gas oven for 50 minutes. It sure looked pretty and smelled great coming out of the oven. If I wasn't trying to loose my extra holiday weight I would have had a slice.
