Quiche is not just for breakfast. Today’s recipe for enchilada quiche is a great dinner time option.
I originally found this recipe in The Oregonian years ago and we have been enjoying it ever since.
It has the look and texture of a quiche but the taste of an enchilada.
I took the easy route and used a store bought pie shell. I like the ones you find in the freezer section, that come in the pan.
The quiche is perfect paired with a nice salad, some sour cream and a few chips and salsa.
We enjoyed it warm but it is lovely at room temperature too.
