:-) Make sure you're using mini-muffin cups rather than regular sized ones to make sure there is enough dough for the recipe!

The first time I have made quiche. The dough can be stretched real thin. I could see the metal of the 24 mini muffin tin I was using. I made half of them with a ton of filling and the other half without. This recipe provides a lot of filling and it is the perfect amount of filling if you fill every cup half way and stretch the dough up half way definitely. Cook the chorizo before using it and drain as much grease as possible.

This is truly amazing. I dipped them in a little hot hot sauce and it made them POP!! Although, they are so good on their own there is no dipping required. Man alive they went quickly. Make a double batch!! These will grace my snack table for every football game for years to come.....

Measurements were way off for me. I was able to make the dough as directed but it did not go the length expected. I did enjoy the taste of the dough, however. And the filling is quite delectable too. I love making quiches but I am not too familiar with making them miniature. I will definitely have to work on my measurements. I only have one 12 cup muffin pan and this recipe filled just that amount. There's no way I could stretch it to make 24. My mistake?

Loved this quiche - easy to make, and a hit at breakfast club with friends! It took me quite some time making the dough cups/making it thin and if you're a perfectionist like I am, this part will take a good 30 minutes. I also used turkey bacon (which I microwaved before adding to the egg mixture) instead of chorizo sausage, and substituted fresh jalapenos instead of the green chiles. Not too spicy and has great flavor!

Followed as directed no need to change anything. We will be making and servicing at midnight lunch at my daughter's wedding. Awesome, my wife and I love them.

This turned out perfect. The crust was very good. Pretty heavy on the green chilies, though. I may half them next time.

Excited to try, but question: Is the chorizo cooked prior to adding into the egg mixture? If not, seems it would be somewhat difficult for it to crumble & distribute evenly. Thanks for the recipe!
