tortilla-crusted quiche

Tortilla Quiche


  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 2 chipotles in adobo, minced
  • 1 hot chili pepper, diced
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • leftover sautéed leeks, sliced
  • grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • cilantro, minced
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Sauté peppers and onions and such together. (I also had a leftover uncooked hamburger patty, so about 6 ounces of ground beef.) Season with salt and pepper. Add zucchini and tomatoes and cooked leeks. Add cilantro at the end. Note: This is just what I had on hand — use anything you have.
  3. Line a buttered dish, such as a 9-inch round baking or pie pan, with about 4 tortillas.Whisk together 3 eggs with 1/2 cup of milk in a large bowl. Add the prepped ingredients. Add the cheese and stir.
  4. Pour into prepared tortilla-lined pan. Bake for about 30 minutes or until set. Mixture should jiggle just slightly when shaken.
  5. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes before cutting. Ta-da! A simple simple quiche.
