Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Press pie crust into a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chorizo in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes; drain and discard grease.

  • Lightly beat eggs and milk together in a large bowl; stir in tomatoes with green chile peppers and half the Mexican cheese blend.

  • Spread refried beans evenly across the bottom of the pie crust; layer chorizo onto refried beans. Pour egg mixture over chorizo layer; top with remaining Mexican cheese blend.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the middle of the quiche comes out clean and cheese is lightly browned, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Cook's Notes:

Depending on the thickness of the refried beans, they may need to be heated briefly in the microwave or on a stove top to ease in spreading. The recipe can easily be made vegetarian by using vegetarian beans and holding the chorizo. Works well with refried black beans as well.

This was really delicious but I'd use less beans the next time. It was too much for the deep dish pie crust and we had spill over. I used the beans with jalapenos which gave it a nice kick. Read More

We thought this was just o.k. Used hot chorizo so it had plenty of flavor. I think some type of casserole would have been a better use of the ingredients (minus the egg). Read More

This was so frickin good! My whole family loved it! I must say though, that this was way too much for only one pie crust. I would recommend using 2 pie crusts and instead of 2 cups of cheese each, use only 1 cup of cheese for each quiche. Again, this was awesome Read More

I used hot rotel tomatoes and slightly less refried beans, and I made it in a round casserole dish because I don't have a deep dish pie plate. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. It was amazing! Even my toddler loved it. Read More

Absolutely wonderful recipe! I also experienced spillover when preparing the dish. Next time I'll either use less refried beans or a larger crust. Edit: I made this again in May 2018. I made sure to use a deep dish crust this time. Still as delicious as the first time! Read More

My husband and I loved this! I chopped up an onion and 2 cloves garlic to fry with the Italian sausage I removed from its casing and fried. I put the two frozen pie crust shells in two pans baked for ten minutes then filled according to directions. On top I added sliced grape tomatoes and green pepper. Baked according to directions. Yum!

I chose a regular (not deep-dish) pie shell. Bid Mistake. Read More
