Charlene's Three-Minute Quiche



If you're going to have a pile of hungry mouths to feed this week, consider making this delicious quiche, which my friend Charlene shared last week at our Moms in Touch prayer meeting. It can serve as breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Make it a couple hours ahead, if possible, so it has time to "set."

The crust is a large tortilla, and the rest of the ingredients are super quick to throw together. When I made it, I doubled the recipe, and there was enough filling to make three quiches, not two. How's that for an extra bonus?

1/2 lb. grated Monterey Jack cheese

1/2 lb. grated Cheddar cheese

2 c. (16 oz.) cottage cheese

7 oz. mild salsa

3 1/2 oz. mild diced green chiles

4 eggs

1 large tortilla, to serve as crust (I used flour tortillas)

In Charlene's words: "Here comes the hard part -- Mix it all together in one bowl! Dump it onto the tortilla pie crust." Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes or so, until it doesn't look gooey in the middle.

That's it. Truly delicious.

Tomorrow I am doing a post of alternative recipes for plain old pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, and cranberry sauce in a can.

Looks wonderful. I would try it this morning, but I don't have tortillas. I'll be sure to try it sometime soon. I love easy/good.
