Corn Tortilla Quiche

First, let me just say that I have never made quiche before.  But even a beginner like me can make magic happen. :)  It was amazing!



I followed the recipe pretty closely but I did make a couple substitutions.
Instead of sausage, I used bacon (almost a whole package).
Instead of whipping cream, I used evaporated milk.
And instead of Monterey Jack cheese, I used Mozzarella.
I also DOUBLED the recipe.

While the bacon was cooking: 
I preheated the oven to 350

Greased 2 pie plates-- use a 9-in, if you use an 8-in be sure not to put too much in it.  I learned the hard way and now there's egg in the bottom of my oven :)

Arrange tortillas-- four overlapping, 1/2-in beyond rim


Then layer, bacon, cheese, chilies, and s l o w l y add egg mixture on top.


Then bake for 45 - 55 minutes until center is set.  Sprinkle with cilantro (I used dried) and your done!

I made 2, we ate one and I froze the other one.  First I let it cool completely, I wrapped it in plastic wrap, then in foil, then labeled it in a freezer bag...overkill?? maybe.  The second one I baked in a pie tin....but again don't put too much filling in it or you your husband will be cleaning your oven! :)


I've read that quiche freezes really well.  Reheat until heated through.  It really was good...
Be sure to reference the recipe for better instructions :)

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But
