First I just want to say that I am having huge issues with Blogger (and have been for a few weeks) for some reason when I go to leave a comment on someones post it takes forever and usually times if I usually frequent your blog and you've noticed I haven't been around lately I actually have I just can not seem to leave comments...hopefully it will get better soon!

Alright so a few weeks ago I was over at my girl Alexis' blog looking around (as I always do) and I came across a recipe that I just had to try, which is rare because I do not use recipes...ever! The recipe is for Taco Quiche and since I am a huge fan of Mexican food (I eat tacos at least once a week much to the chagrin of everyone in my family) I just had to try it.

Since this recipe calls for salsa I knew this was the perfect chance for me to try out some of the new Pace Picante Speciality Salsas that I had the pleasure of reviewing. The salsas come in some amazing combinations like Black Bean and Roasted Corn, Pineapple Mango Chipotle and Tequila Lime Salsa...yummo! I was able to try the Salsa Verde which combines tomatillos and jalapenos for a wonderfully spicy kick! Now on to the Taco Quiche Recipe!

Taco Quiche
1 pie shell (I used the Deep Dish)
1 Pound Ground Beef
1 Cup Mexican Cheese
1 medium onion chopped
3 eggs
1/4 cup salsa (I used a combination of the Salsa Verde and Mild Salsa)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 envelope taco seasoning

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line pie shell with aluminum foil and bake for 5 minutes, remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes. In a medium skillet brown ground beef and onion. Place taco meat, cheese, and additional onion (if desired) in the bottom of the pie shell. In a separate bowl whisk 3 eggs, salsa, milk, salt, and pepper (I also added extra cheese into the egg mix). Pour egg mixture over the taco meat in the pie shell. (I recommend placing the pie tin on a baking sheet to avoid spill over into the oven). Cover edges with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Yield 6 servings.

Hot and yummy out of the oven!

This recipe is quickly becoming one of our favorites, even Gaige who refuses to eat anything but green beans and bread loves it! I usually serve this with Mexican Rice and extra salsa for dipping!

Make sure you try this yummy, quick, and affordable recipe...and also check out the entire line of Pace Picante Specialty Salsas!
