Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 packages (14.1 ounces) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 Cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (15.5 ounces) BUSHS Black Chili Beans
  • ½ Cup red pepper, finely diced
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ Cup half and half

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray two 24-cup mini muffin tins with cooking spray.

Using a 2½-inch-round cutter, cut 12 circles from each sheet of pie crust. Press 1 pie crust round into bottom and up sides of muffin cup. Repeat until all cups have pie crust.

Place 1 teaspoon of cheese in each muffin cup. Divide beans between each muffin cup (approximately ½ tablespoon per cup) and top with about ½ teaspoon of pepper.

Combine eggs and half & half and beat until well blended. Pour the mixture into the crusts, filling each ¼-inch from the top.

Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly. Cool 2 minutes. With tip of knife, lift quiches from cups. Serve warm.

Quiche Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Quiche Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.

Quiche Wine Pairing

Grenache, gamay, or pinot noir with vegetarian quiche; merlot or carménère with bacon or sausage quiche.
