Avocados in quiche? Absolutely. Prepare in individual tart pans or in 2 large (10-11") quiche pans -- it works best with straight sides instead of slanted pie-plate sides. Use more jalepenos if you have a taste for the hot stuff.

Recipe Ingredients for Tex-Mex Quiche

8 eggs
12 oz avocado
1 t tabasco
1 T lime juice
15 oz ranch style beans
3 oz onion
3 oz onion
1 clove garlic
6 oz cherry tomatoes
8 oz low fat cheese
6 oz frozen whole kernel corn
4 oz jalepeno peppers
1 1/2 c cornbread mix
3/4 c water
1 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
2 T fresh cilantro

Recipe Directions for Tex-Mex Quiche

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Lightly spray baking dishes with Pam or other light oil spray, and line bottom of pans with parchment rounds.

  2. Quarter and lightly salt cherry tomatoes and allow to drain on towels.

  3. In a blender or food processor, combine eggs, ripe avocado, tabasco, lime juice, juice from 1 can of Ranch-style Beans, garlic, 3 oz onion, salt, pepper, and 1 t of the brine from a jar of pickled jalepenos.

  4. Evenly distribute beans, quartered cherry tomatoes, shredded cheese, corn kernels, finely minced jalepeno and onion, and minced fresh cilantro in quiche pan(s)

  5. Pour avocado/egg mixture over the solids.

  6. Prepare cornbread mix with water as directed on package (use a mix that requires only water to prepare.)

  7. Using a teaspoon, drop dollops of the cornbread mixture around the outside edge of the pan, leaving about 1/2" between cornbread batter and the actual pan rim. Use any additional batter in dollops in the center area, or make a design. If using individual tart pans, put the batter in the center area or the outside edge, but not both. The point is to leave room for the filling to expand. Depending on the size of the baking dishes used, you may need 8 individual pans, or 2 med. quiche pans.

  8. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then lower oven temp to 350 and continue to bake for 30-40 minutes, until set.

  9. For a less intense heat, use Trappy's Red Devil hot sauce instead of Tabasco.

  10. **Makes 8 x 12-13oz servings.
