Chicken Enchilada Quiche Delicious At Any Time Of Day
If you've been with me very long, you know I love to make quiche for my family. Whether it's my Easy Sausage Quiche, cheesy Broccoli Cheddar Bacon Quiche or Kentucky Hot Brown Quiche perfect for Derby Day brunching, it never lasts very long on our table. I've often said, whoever coined the saying "Real men don't eat quiche" has never met my house full of boys. They love it. Our affinity for Mexican flavors led me to develop this variation of quiche and it was an instant hit.
Due to the fact this quiche features Mexican food flavors, you can have fun with the toppings. Consider topping each slice with your favorite taco condiments. Just a few ideas that may inspire you:
- Top with a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
- Hot, medium or mild salsa or salsa verde
- Homemade pico de gallo
- Sliced black olives
- Green onion or chives
- Hot Sauce
Other Unique Ways To Enjoy Quiche
My Cornbread and Sausage Quiche remains a fan favorite year after year here on MSSK, and rightly so. The addition of cornbread, one of the favored house breads of the South, is a delicious twist. You may also like to try Meat Lovers Quiche from Barbara Bakes and Caprese Quiche from The Blond Cook.
