Now that I’ve been running my own household for nearly 15 years, it’s fun to have a pretty solid selection of standard recipes that I can fall back on.
This green chile quiche recipe is definitely one of them. I’m not a huge fan of most quiches, but this one is fantastic.
I’ve made it for a quick weeknight dinner and when we have company. I’ve made it for brunches and for dinner and for baby showers and for picnics.
It’s super simple to make and it reheats like a dream.
When I’m making it for dinner, I generally make one big one in a pie crust, but when I occasionally host a brunch, I like to make it in a muffin tin so I have a dozen single servings.
And they are always CRAZY popular, with people asking for the recipe afterward.
With the holidays coming up, stash this recipe away fo when you need something easy that’s almost entirely hands-on.
Green Chile Quiche Recipe
Green Chile Quiche
This green chile quiche is my #1 favorite quiche recipe. It's so delicious and super easy to make. It's a perfect brunch food or a simple dinner with a side salad.
- 1 T olive oil
- 1/2 onion diced
- 3/4 c milk half-and-half, or cream (or some combination of those)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese I sometimes do half cheddar and half mozzarella, depending on what I have around
- 1 4- ounce can diced mild green chiles
- 1 9- inch pie crust you can use a frozen one or make your own.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Heat the oil in skillet over medium heat and add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about five minutes, until the onions are soft-ish.
Meanwhile, whisk the remaining ingredients (except the crust of course) together in a medium bowl. Add in the onions when they are done. Pour filling into your crust and bake until golden brown and set in the center, about 40-45 minutes.
