Sausage Tortilla Quiche


  • 10 (6 inch) Corn Tortillas
  • 12 ozs. Bulk Sausage (cooked & crumbled)
  • 1 C. Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1 C. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 ozs. Chopped Green Chiles
  • 12 Eggs
  • 1 C. Milk
  • 1 tsp. Ground Chili powder


Grease two (9-inch) glass pie plates, and spread 5 tortillas in each plate to make a “crust,” overlapping edges. Divide crumbled sausage evenly between pie plates. Spread 1/2 cup Monterey Jack over sausage in each dish, followed by Cheddar cheese. Divide green chiles over cheeses. Preheat the oven to 350°. Place eggs in large bowl and beat well. Add milk and chili powder. Pour over layered ingredients. Bake 50 minutes, or until center tests done. Allow to stand 10 minutes before slicing each quiche into wedges.
