Mexican Quiche

tortilla crust quiche slice

Do you remember the bread crust quiche I shared two weeks ago?  Here is the other quiche I made that night.  My family preferred this one to the other, and I think I will make it again.  The tortillas made a nice thin crust, though I still think no crust at all is a delicious and easy way to make any quiche.

The pieces of tortilla that were sticking up were too hard to eat, but the rest was very good.  We enjoyed the flavors, and I bet many of you would too.

Be sure to come back Wednesday for the quiche roundup.

    Great idea, Linda. I can't wait to make it! Thanks for linking to TMTT!

  2. Joy @ Joy Of Desserts says:

    Sounds good. Too bad the edges got hard, it looked so pretty like a rose.

  3. JessieLeigh says:

    This looks really yummy! We love quiches (and frittatas) around here. I think they're one of the best ways for using up leftovers. :) Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  4. gfe--gluten free easily says:

    Oh, yes, I can see this dish being very popular! I like using corn tortillas that way. It's similar to my enchilada casserole. One doesn't have to worry about them falling apart like you do if you use them whole. Yum, Linda!


  5. Tasty Eats At Home says:

    Love your easy ideas for quiche crust! I've once made a quiche using canadian bacon slices (you know, the 3-4 inch ones) as the crust. Works great! Not for a Mexican quiche really, though, cause the flavors aren't quite right, but a breakfast quiche would be great.

    I've been enjoying your different quiche crusts! Eggs and Salsa are such a great idea, quick and easy :)

    That looks EXCELLENT and so easy! Thanks for sharing…I think it would make a great breakfast. I bet using a hashbrown crust could work nicely as well.

  11. I wonder if there is something I could use instead of the corn tortillas? I’m also grain free and this looks too delicious to pass up so I have to find a way to eat it.

  12. Michelle says:

    Next time, try taking a piece of foil long enough to wrap around the outside eges of the pan. Fold it in half length wise. Wrap it all the way around with some sticking over the edge of the tortilla. once u have it wrapped fold it over the edges of the tortilla and bake, the last 5-7 min of baking take it off. Should keep them pretty soft that way.
