Mini Mexican Quiches

Sorry for the absence this weekend :) I have been enjoying my time at SNAP conference and have been a little pre-occupied learning some amazing things for this crazy and fun blogging journey. Have no fear though, I am back and ready to get this week kicked off with some flavor ;-)

I love these cute little quiches because they have a unique and tasty Mexican twist to them, and we all know by now how much I love my Mexican food. Topped with some sour cream and juicy tomato and my palate was in heaven!  If you are looking for a change to your typical quiche recipe, definitely give this a try!

Mini Mexican Quiches on ...These are such a flavorful and unique spin on a traditional breakfast favorite! YUM!

    Sounds wonderful, I will definitely be using this one very soon. One question I cannot find where to add the 1/2 cups grated Parmesan Cheese. Am assuming to add it with the cheddar, spinach and cottage cheese. Please confirm. thanks for sharing so many wonderful recipes.

    1. Chef in Training

      Yes you are correct. So sorry about that. Thanks for catching that. The recipe has now been updated.

    can you bake them in the mini muffin pans? if so what is the cooking time

    1. Chef in Training

      I am not sure, I haven't done it that way before. It will probably take less time, you will just have to watch them to they reach the point where the eggs are cooked through. Sorry I am not much more help on that. If I try it out, I will let you know.

  5. Barbara Biedenharn

    Eggs added in step 1 or step 2? Can't wait to try this!

      SO sorry about that. They are added in step 2. Thanks for catching that.

  6. Tony
