  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch pie plate.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in sausage. Cook and stir until sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  3. Place four tortillas in prepared pie plate, overlapping and extending 1/2-inch beyond rim; place remaining tortilla in center. Layer sausage, Monterey Jack cheese, Cheddar cheese, and green chilies over tortillas. Combine eggs, heavy whipping cream, ricotta cheese, and chili powder in a bowl; slowly pour egg mixture into pie plate.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until center is set and puffed, about 45 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro and cut into wedges.

This was really good. I made 1/3 recipe for two of us. I used lowfat milk & cottage cheese. I'll definately be making this regularly

I doubled the recipe and used an emu egg In lieu of 12 chicken eggs. The doubled recipe fit nicely in a 9x13 baking dish. I used 9 corn tortillas to line the dish and doubled the ingredients. ...

My kids love this recipe. Works great for my gluten-free eater as well. Everyone is happy!

I also used chorizo and reduced each cheese by 1/2. I wouldn't say it was delicious, but it was good.

I loved the flavour of this quiche! I added sliced sausages, but I should have chopped them smaller. They ruined the overall texture of the dish. My fault entirely, as it seems like sausage crum...
