Original recipe makes 1 9-inch quiche Change Servings
  • PREP

    15 mins
  • COOK

    50 mins

    1 hr 20 mins


  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.

I used the basic recipe , but incorporated fresh ingredients for the tomatoes and chillies, made my own refried beans and used turkey sausage with mexican spices.... if it was this good from pantry cooking... I've got to make trip to the grocery next time and try the real deal! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

This was really delicious but I'd use less beans the next time. It was too much for the deep dish pie crust and we had spill over. I used the beans with jalapenos which gave it a nice kick.

Absolutely wonderful recipe! I also experienced spillover when preparing the dish. Next time I'll either use less refried beans or a larger crust.

I had thawed some chorizo and wanted something different...had everything to make this and it was very good. Definitely a quick and easy recipe that uses things I normally keep on hand, thanks!
