Chicken Taco Quiche by Katie

This is a Taste of Home recipe. (Makes 2 quiches - 6 servings each)

2 unbaked pastry shells (9 in)
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
2 envelopes taco seasoning, divided
1 cup salsa
2 cups (8 oz) shredded chedder cheese
8 eggs
2 cups half & half cream
2 tbs. butter, melted
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chilies
1/2 cup sliced ripe olives (which I did not add)

Line unpricked pastry shells w/ a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake @ 400 degrees for 4 minutes. Remove foil, bake 4 minutes longer.
In a small bowl, combine chicken and one envelope taco seasoning; spoon into pastry shells. Top w/salsa and cheese. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, butter and remaining taco seasoning. Stir in chilies and olives. Pour over cheese.

Cover and freeze one quiche for up to 3 months. Cover edges of remaining quiche loosely w/ foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake @ 400 degrees for 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

To use frozen quiche:
Remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (DO NOT THAW). Cover edges of crust loosely w/ foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake @ 400 degrees for 70-75 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

* It would be perfect with chips and salsa, or we pair it with Dorito Salad here at the Pokopac house!


  1. Okay, what is Dorito salad? It has to be good.

  2. one word - YUM! Everyone loved this. Chad and I added my homemade hot salsa and a little sour cream on top and it was FANTASTIC! Our girls like all things mexican so they really enjoyed it too. The pie crust was a welcomed change to the usual chips or tortillas. We will definitely make this one again! We served ours with a side salad and it was just right. We had enough for one serving left-over-which I hoarded for myself:)

  3. Fabulous! This is one of our favorite FF meals ever. Everyone loved it. The kids even fought over who got to take the last piece for lunch. Sadly for them, they forgot and I ate it! Thank you for the meal.

  4. We really liked this and it was just enough with no leftovers. (2 adults, 4 kids). It was a really nice different dish. Thank you!

  5. Micah and the kids enjoyed this. Kids did ok with it and when I got home there was a delicious piece left for me! Thanks!

  6. Great flavor! Just enough for our family. Definitely one I'll make again. Thanks, Katie.

  7. Andrea, Good meal. Was great with tortilla chips and salsa. Thanks!
