A Quiche Recipe With Tex-Mex Flavors

This Sausage Tex-Mex Quiche has a homemade tortilla chip crust! I mean, how genius is this, you guys…

I actually love quiche. Anything with eggs and cheese and sausage in some sort of buttery crust is alright in my book.

The crust is actually made from just ground up tortilla chips and butter. Pretty much the same idea as a graham cracker crust for a pie, except with tortilla chips. You can get creative with the crust, too! Flavored tortilla chips or even – dare we say – cheesy tortilla chips??? I say yes.

The best part about this quiche is that you can do it a day ahead of time and warm it in the oven the next morning or that night for dinner. I almost think that it tastes even better if you make it up the day before – another bonus.

How Do You Make This Sausage Tex-Mex Quiche?

You can make the tortilla crust and filling ahead of time and then bake when ready!

  1. Add the tortilla chips to a food processor and pulse until the crumbs are fine like breadcrumbs. Measure out 2 cups of crumbs and leave the rest of the crumbs for topping the quiche .
  2. Mix the melted butter, sugar and the 2 cups of crumbs together in a bowl and then press into the bottom of a spring form pan. Bake for 10 minutes until the crust is brown and set.
  3. Brown the onion for 5 minutes and then add the sausage and cook until no pink remains. Add the green chilis and stir to combine.
  4. Beat the eggs together with cheese, sour cream, salt, pepper and taco seasoning.
  5. Pour the filling into the tortilla crust then add the sausage mixture. Place the pan on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool 5 minutes, then run a knife around the edge of the quiche to loosen it from the sides of the pan. Loosen the spring and remove the quiche. Slice into 8 wedges and serve.

Bake for 30-40 minutes and then top with some extra tortilla chips crumbs. We like to go full on Tex-Mex and serve this quiche recipe with sour cream and guacamole on the side! Salsa or fresh Pico de Gallo would be a tasty addition too!
