Ingredients

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep-dish pie crust
  • 10 ounces chorizo sausage
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®), drained
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided

  • Recipe Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Press pie crust into a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan.
    2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir chorizo in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes; drain and discard grease.
    3. Lightly beat eggs and milk together in a large bowl; stir in tomatoes with green chile peppers and half the Mexican cheese blend.
    4. Spread refried beans evenly across the bottom of the pie crust; layer chorizo onto refried beans. Pour egg mixture over chorizo layer; top with remaining Mexican cheese blend.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the middle of the quiche comes out clean and cheese is lightly browned, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes before serving.

      • Cook’s Notes:
      • Depending on the thickness of the refried beans, they may need to be heated briefly in the microwave or on a stove top to ease in spreading. The recipe can easily be made vegetarian by using vegetarian beans and holding the chorizo. Works well with refried black beans as well.
