This quiche was very good ~ in fact, Mr. Meat Eater ate about 2/3 of it…with hot sauce and extra jalapenos!

It’s really an easy recipe to make.  I used 6 corn tortillas because my pan was a little bigger than called for.  I also used regular sausage because I’m not a fan of sausage to begin with and I am really not a fan of hot sausage.

Fiesta Corn Tortilla Quiche
Submitted by Vickie of Gooseberry Patch

1 lb hot ground pork sausage
5 (6 in) corn tortillas
1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilies, drained
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese

Brown sausage in a skillet over medium heat and drain.

Meanwhile arrange tortillas in a lightly greased 9″ pie plate, overlapping on the bottom and extending 1/2 inch over the edge of the plate.

Spoon sausage, chilies, and cheeses into tortilla-lined pie plate. In a bowl, beat together remaining ingredients and carefully pour over sausage mixture.

Bake uncovered at 375º for 45 minutes or until golden.

Cut into wedges to serve.

Makes 4 servings.

Happy Cooking!

  1. This turned out fantastic! There was some tweaking, though. I used flour tortillas instead of corn, 1/4 c of half and half instead of the heavy cream, and sour cream instead of cottage cheese. I should have doubled the recipe! It rocked!

  2. That looks delicious.
    How well does it keep? I would probably make it in ramekins for individual servings. But there are only two of us, so it would have to still be good the next day or so later.
