I was asked to host a brunch recently and decided to make this Mexican Quiche. Why am I calling it “Mexican”? Well look at the ingredients.

Most likely not authentic Mexican cuisine but what the heck. It’s a great quiche recipe so there you have it.

Like most of my recipes, this one is also super easy to make. Chances are if you cook often, you probably already have all the ingredients to make this quiche on hand.

Except maybe the pie crust. You can use either the pre-formed pie crust that comes in a foil pan or the Pillsbury type that you roll out and put in your own baking dish.

Quiche is basically an egg pie. It can be filled with pieces of cheese, meat, seafood or vegetables. Originally from France, it can be served hot or cold and is popular worldwide.

I recommend using a deep-dish pie crust if using a frozen one or if using a pre-made pie crust, make sure you use a deep dish pan to ensure it can handle all of the cheese and meat mixture.

When it comes time to serve the quiche, I would suggest a side of sour cream or crema as well as some salsa.

Some of your guests might like it plain, but I think some sour cream and a little salsa adds to the nice flavors of the green chilies and black olives.

    You say this recipe has green chilis and black olives but ingredients do not list olives – should they be included and if so how much?

    1. Thanks for reaching out! While the use of black olives is totally optional, I updated the recipe card to include them. Enjoy!
