The first time I have made quiche. The dough can be stretched real thin. I could see the metal of the 24 mini muffin tin I was using. I made half of them with a ton of filling and the other half without. This recipe provides a lot of filling and it is the perfect amount of filling if you fill every cup half way and stretch the dough up half way definitely. Cook the chorizo before using it and drain as much grease as possible. Read More

:-) Make sure you're using mini-muffin cups rather than regular sized ones to make sure there is enough dough for the recipe! Read More

This is truly amazing. I dipped them in a little hot hot sauce and it made them POP!! Although they are so good on their own there is no dipping required. Man alive they went quickly. Make a double batch!! These will grace my snack table for every football game for years to come..... Read More

These are totally awesome! Instead of making 24 minis I used a 12 muffin pan and they worked great! Read More

Loved this quiche - easy to make and a hit at breakfast club with friends! It took me quite some time making the dough cups/making it thin and if you're a perfectionist like I am this part will take a good 30 minutes. I also used turkey bacon (which I microwaved before adding to the egg mixture) instead of chorizo sausage and substituted fresh jalapenos instead of the green chiles. Not too spicy and has great flavor! Read More

Update: made 300 mini quiches for midnight lunch for my daughters wedding. All quiches eaten within 1/2 hour of being served. Other food served as well. Quiches were a super big hit! Read More

Measurements were way off for me. I was able to make the dough as directed but it did not go the length expected. I did enjoy the taste of the dough however. And the filling is quite delectable too. I love making quiches but I am not too familiar with making them miniature. I will definitely have to work on my measurements. I only have one 12 cup muffin pan and this recipe filled just that amount. There's no way I could stretch it to make 24. My mistake? Read More

I used a shortcut- I used tortillas that were cut in half and then cut to fit the muffin pan. I used a regular 6-muffin tin. So three eggs was the perfect amount. I only had to bake mine for 18 minutes and the tortilla got nice and crispy! Could be easily adapted. Read More
