Enchilada Quiche

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.
