Fiesta Corn Tortilla Quiche

Hello, Dear Ones!
Do you ever visit the Gooseberry Patch blog?
If you haven't you need to because I'm sharing a recipe with you I found on their blog and it is so delicious! You're going to love it.
Feast your most gorgeous peepers on this...
Fiesta Corn Tortilla Quiche.
Trust me, this was so delicious.
The crust is made with corn tortillas...easy peasy.
We loved this and I think you will too.
The only thing I changed in the recipe was I swapped the cottage cheese (I don't like cottage cheese)
and used ricotta cheese instead.
Poked on a few jalapenos and sliced tomatoes and it was a home run!
Make sure you pop over to The Gooseberry Patch blog and you'll find some good recipes.

Fiesta Corn Tortilla Quiche

1 lb. hot ground pork sausage
5-6-inch corn tortillas
4-oz. can chopped green chiles, drained
1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
1 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. whipping cream
1/2 c. small-curd cottage cheese (I used ricotta instead)

Brown sausage in a skillet over medium heat; drain. Meanwhile, arrange tortillas in a lightly greased 9" pie plate, overlapping on the bottom and extending 1/2 inch over the edge of plate. Spoon sausage, chiles and cheeses into tortilla-lined pie plate. In a bowl, beat together remaining ingredients. Pour egg mixture over sausage mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 45 minutes, or until golden. Cut into wedges to serve. Serves 4.

I'll leave you a little Note Song ~

It was a moonlit night in old Mexico 
I walked alone between some old adobe haciendas.  
Suddenly, I heard the plaintive cry of a young Mexican girl
You better come home, Speedy Gonzales  
Away from tannery row  
Stop alla your a-drinkin'  
With that floozie named Flo
Come on home to your adobe  
And slap some mud on the wall 
The roof is leakin' like a strainer  
There's loadsa roaches in the hall
Speedy Gonzales  
Why don'tcha come home? 
Speedy Gonzales How come ya leave me all alone?
Hey, Rosita-I hafta go shopping downtown for my mudder
She needs some tortillas and chili peppers
Your doggy's gonna have a puppy  
And we're runnin' outta coke  
No enchiladas in the icebox  
And the television's broke
I saw some lipstick on your sweatshirt 
I smelled some perfume in your ear  
Well, if you're gonna keep on messin' 
Don't bring your business back a-here
Speedy Gonzales  
Why don'tcha come home? 
Speedy Gonzales 
How come ya leave me all alone?
Hey, Rosita-come quick, down at the canteena  
They giving green stamps with tequila

  18. Shelia,
    This corn tortilla quiche looks so yummy. Quiches are one of my favorites. I noticed your red tea pot and smiled. I used to have red in my kitchen, and I really miss it. I recently changed it to turquoise, but I think I will always be a RED girl.

    I hope you are enjoying the summer days, dear.
