"A great (and man-pleasin') breakfast or brunch main dish! Prepare the taco meat the night before and keep refrigerated; warm in microwave next morning to really speed up this dish! I especially love serving this for Football Brunch... Holds 'em over till halftime so I can watch the game too! Serve with sour cream and enjoy!" — RockingItCountryStyle

1 (8 ounce) jar
green bell pepper, chopped
1 (16 ounce) package
shredded Mexican-style cheese blend
salt and black pepper to taste
1 (1 ounce) packet
taco seasoning mix
1 (9 inch)
unbaked deep dish pie crust
I played with this recipe a bit to help it to fit into one pie crust. I cut the milk back by almost half and I used about a half pound of seasoned taco meat instead of a full pound. I did use salsa verde and red bell pepper instead of green. Cutting those ingredients back, I had no issue with an overfull crust. I served this with oven roasted home fries. My husband and I thought this was okay, my two boys loved it.
This makes a huge amount. More than will fit in a 9 inch deep dish pie crust. I used half the meat, half the cheese and still had way too much for the largest pie pan I had which is 11 inches across & l 1/2 inches deep. There was a lot of the egg/milk mixture left over. It makes a tasty quiche but halve the recipe & use a large pie dish.
My family loved this recipe. I filled 2 nine inch deep dish pie crusts, and was worried that alot of it would go to waste, but it didn't. There was only a couple of pieces left, and we ate them the next day as leftovers. Awesome recipe. Thanks!
This was awesome. Instead of following the other reviewers' instructions, I decided to spread 2 pie crusts into my enchilada pan, and it was perfect for one big quiche. I also used a whole onion, because a half an onion is unheard of in my household :) My husband loved this so much, I am definitely gonna make it often. I am kind of an amateur cook, but am trying to do it more often, and this really boosted my cooking ego. My husband said he couldn't believe I made something that tasted this good. Thanks!!
This dish is so easy to make and super yummy! I agree with everyone who said it makes too much filling, so make 2 quiches or cut the recipe in half. I will be making this again real soon!!!
I agree with the other reviewer's this recipe makes too much filling. In order to only make one quiche I used the five eggs and them eye balled it for the rest of the ingredients. I only used about 1/2 a pound of hamburger meat and 3/4 cup of milk. My children and I enjoyed the end result, but my DH was not impressed.
Loved this! Hubby raved. I made it a dinner meal and didn't add eggs. I added cheese on top and baked it for 25 mins. Hummock!!
I found this recipe when looking for something to do with a pie crust and left-over taco meat. I sent it today with my husband to work and he and his co-workers devoured it. He said it was "a big hit". I followed other reviewers advise and scaled down the ingredients. I used 3 eggs, 1 cup milk, kept the green pepper the same at 1/2 c., used 1/4 large onion, about 1.5 c. cooked taco meat, 2 handfuls shredded cheddar (didn't have mex cheese blend on hand), and 1/2 tomato chopped (instead of salsa which I also did not have). I baked it in a deep 9" pie plate in my gas oven for 50 minutes. It sure looked pretty and smelled great coming out of the oven. If I wasn't trying to loose my extra holiday weight, I would have had a slice.
