Make Something Monday: Taco Quiche

I had some leftover taco meat and cheese and I was feeling a little creative after making my first quiche a couple weeks back. I came up with the following recipe with my leftovers.

Taco Quiche
  • 1 pastry shell
  • 1 cup taco meat
  • 1 cup taco/Mexican cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt

Line unpricked pastry shells with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer.

Place taco meat, cheese and onion in the bottom of the pastry shell. In a bowl, whisk eggs, salsa, milk, salt and pepper. Pour into shell. Sprinkle onion salt over top of quiche. Cover edges with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
It came out pretty good for an experiment! I ended up putting more salsa on top to add a little more flavor. Actually, almost anything that you would put in a taco could be added in or on the quiche. (I would not recommend putting lettuce 'in' the quiche, though-LOL!)
