What’s in this Tex-Mex Crustless Quiche?

- Heavy Cream

- Green Pepper
- Red Pepper
- Shredded Cheese
Tips for Making this Tex-Mex Crustless Quiche:
- Chorizo. When you are sourcing ground chorizo from the store make sure it is from the butcher. Basically, you want to stay away from the tube kind of chorizo. It’s no bueno.
- Vegetables. To make this a Tex-Mex approved quiche I tossed in a couple of peppers. You can definitely add in poblano peppers or to make it spicy some jalapenos!
- Heavy cream. If I am going to make a quiche I usually go all in. BUT! If you want to keep this dish on the lighter side I would use half-n-half.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What’s the difference between a Quiche & a Frittata?
The difference between the two is that a frittata is typically made with just eggs whereas a quiche is mixed with milk and/or heavy cream, and eggs.
Do you have to eat this Tex-Mex Crustless Quiche for brunch?
Nope! The great thing about this crustless quiche is that it’s completely versatile, easy to assemble, and tastes great with only a few ingredients. So you could serve this any day of the week!
Can I make this quiche vegetarian?
You bet. Simply omit the chorizo and add in more veggies as needed!
Do you have a recipe for quiche with a crust?
Yes! I would try my Everything Burrata Quiche with Almond Crust.
How far in advance can I assemble this quiche?
You can make this quiche fully assembled up to 1 day in advance of baking. Simply cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Let the quiche sit at room temperature for a bit prior to baking, then bake as directed.
