Green Chile Spinach Quiche

Green Chile Spinach Quiche

Breakfast and Brunch Eggs Quiche

You can add other meats or veggies to suite your taste, and this quiche can be baked with or without pie shells. My whole family (ages 65 to 1) love this quiche! Sometimes I add a small package of chopped ham to the recipe.
