Mexican Style Quick Quiche

Not all Mexican inspired dishes need to be absolutely authentic to get my attention. If they taste really good, I'll overlook a lot. This is one of those dishes, courtesy of Mission Foods. I love it for a Sunday brunch, and so will you!

I like to serve it with some pico de gallo on the side, and maybe some sweet watermelon chunks, cantaloupe or other fresh fruit on the plate to cleanse the palate after the "quiche" has been devoured. This is one of my DH's favorite breakfasts. Turns out real men do eat quiche after all. ;)

Serves 4
Preparation Time (min): 7
Cook Time (min): 30

  • 4 Mission® Soft Taco Size Flour Tortillas
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1 Tbsp. All Purpose Flour
  • 1/8 tsp. Tabasco Sauce
  • 1/2 cup canned Corn drained
  • 1/2 cup Ham diced
  • 3/4 cup Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 1 Tbsp. Chives chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray both sides of the tortillas with cooking spray and press into large muffin tins or custard cups. Bake for 10 minutes or until tortilla just begins to turn golden. 2. Remove from heat and cool slightly. In medium bowl, beat together eggs, milk, flour, hot pepper sauce, corn, ham, cheese and chives. Season to taste. 3. Pour mixture into prebaked tortilla shells and bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until set. Serve warm with your favorite salsa.

Buen provecho!
