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.
