Taco Quiche

This takes a little while to bake, so make sure you have enough time. We had dinner a little late last night because I started making this before I realized how long it had to cook.

3 large soft flour tortillas
1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground turkey
1 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 can chopped green chilies
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon cumin
2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese or 2 cups monterey jack pepper cheese
8 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups sour cream
Garnish: chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sliced black olive, salsa

Line a greased 13x9x2 baking dish with the tortillas, tearing to fit if necessary.

Cook the meat and onion in a skillet. Drain off excess fat.

Add garlic, chilies, and seasonings.

Spoon the mixture onto the tortillas. Sprinkle with the cheese.

Beat eggs well and then blend in the sour cream. Pour this mixture on top of the meat and cheese.

Bake in a preheated oven set at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.

Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.

Garnish and enjoy.

Did I change anything? I didn’t, but if I was doing to make this again I think I would make it with chorizo instead of hamburger, but maybe not as much chorizo so it’s not too spicy.

What did the family think? Everyone ate it! I was kind of surprised, but everyone liked it. Sean and I spiced ours up a bit with some salsa and the boys ate theirs plain.
