Delicious!! I didn't have a jalepeno or a can of green chili peppers on hand so I used some Mexican style ROTEL instead. It made it colorful and was perfectly spicy and the quiche was delicious! I had 3 coworkers from my department ask me for the recipe. Very easy recipe as well. Will definitely make it again. Read More

This was okay but will make some adjustments next time I make it. We preferred the filling as a breakfast taco instead of a casserole. Read More

I liked this very much!! I seldom give 5 stars to any recipe, but this one was / is worthy. "Quiche" is inaccurate as there is no crust, but as I searched for a great quiche I found this, lucky. My wife needed a dish for a girls-only brunch so I tried this. I subbed HOT sausage and the HOT Rotel tomatoes in lieu of the spices & peppers. I mixed the Rotels with the eggs, then sprinkled a little cheese over the top. I cooked mine 30 minutes as the additional liquid from the Rotels required more cook time to evaporate. VERY TASTY !!! EMPTY DISH!! Wife HAPPY!! Life is good!!! Read More

This was so good, I could eat this every day. The only thing I did differently was add half a tub of light cream cheese to the egg mixture, which made the quiche even creamier and tasted wonderful when combined with the spices. This is a definate keeper! Read More

The pie crust recipe I have makes two crust so I just used one for my regular quiche and the other for this recipe.I made the pie filling just like it is in this recipe but I only wsed 4 eggs and mixed them with 2 cups of milk and added about 1/2 a cup of heavy cream and salt and pepper. That how I make the egg filling for every quiche. It turned out great!! Read More

This was wonderful tasting! I don't even like egg dishes very much but this was great. I did one thing differently: I used fresh chile peppers and added the peppers and onions to the skillet with the meat to cook them a little before going in the oven. Read More

The Food Lover's Companion describes a quiche as "a pastery shell filled with a savory custard made of eggs " making this recipe a breakfast casserole yes? Despite it's improper name the final product was delicious. Who needs the extra calories/fat of a crust anyway? (-: Read More
