Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 50 min
1/2 pound lean ground beef (hamburger)
1/2 cup chopped
1/2 (3-ounce) can chopped
chile peppers (optional)
1/2 teaspoon chili powder*
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or Monterey jack cheese
1 cup sour cream
Toppings (see below)
* I like to use ground red chipotle powder.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a
Quiche Dish. Line the quiche dish with the flour tortillas, tearing to fit
and slightly over laying them. NOTE: Only use one (1) layer of tortillas in the quiche dish.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, sauté the ground beef and onions until the beef is cooked; remove from heat and
drain of any excess fat and discard. Add garlic, chile peppers, chili powder, salt, oregano,
and cumin; stirring to combine the ingredients. Spoon the ground beef mixture into the tortilla-lined quiche pan.
Spoon the shredded cheese over the meat mixture.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs well. Blend in the sour cream. Pour egg mixture on top of the cheese in the quiche pan.
Baked approximately 45 to 50 minutes or until the internal temperature registers at least 160 degrees F. on your
cooking thermometer and the filling is set.
is the type of cooking thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers
asking what cooking thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the
Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. Originally designed for professional users, the
Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer is used by chefs all over the world.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving. When
