  • 1/2 cups - AP Flour
  • 1 teaspoons - Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoons - Salt
  • 1 dozen - Eggs
  • 8 ounces - Monterey Jack
  • 8 ounces - Sharp Cheddar
  • 2 cups - Cottage Cheese, small curd

  • 1/2 cups - Butter, Melted
  • 2 - Unbaked Pie Crusts - 9 inch

    1 Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a small bowl; set aside.
    2 Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until smooth. Whisk in the flour mixture until no lumps remain. Stir in the Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, cottage cheese, spinach, green chiles, and melted butter until evenly blended. Divide the mixture between the pie crusts.

      This receipe looks amazing, however under directions #2, it says combine spinach? And no where does it say when to add chorizo and whether it should be cooked or uncooked

      • MC says:

        Thank you for your comment and question. Some fresh spinach would be an optional add-in, but isn’t included in ingredients list. The chorizo should be cooked already and added at the same time as the cheese and chilies are added. Thank you for stopping by, and please let us know how yours turns out, if you make the quiche!
