The night I made this was one of those nights where I was scrambling for time and didn’t have a clue about what do for dinner (hate that!). This came together quickly, cooked perfectly and we loved it!
The thing I love about a quiche is that you can make them all your own. Whatever ingredients you feel like adding…go for it! Bell peppers? Ham, bacon, sausage? Sure! The cheese I used was a Mexican blend with spices already added in. But you can use cheddar, pepper jack, or whatever your preference is.
I love how the black beans sink to the bottom to almost form a crust. I added cilantro on top for a bit of freshness and it went SO well with the dish. So the next time you are stumped for dinner, think eggs! They aren’t just for breakfast. Enjoy!
Southwestern Quiche 8 large eggs 1/3 cup water 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 2/3 cup low-sodium black beans 1/2 cup chopped tomato 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, pepper jack or a blend) Cilantro, for garnish Salsa, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, water, salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the pie dish.
Sprinkle the black beans and tomatoes on top of the egg mixture. Top with cheese. Bake until the egg is set in the center and starting to brown, 30-35 minutes.
Let cool for about 10 minutes, then cut into wedges. Serve garnished with cilantro and salsa if desired.
