This pie kinda reminds me of a quiche, but it has no crust. It has potato, which gives it some real substance. So easy and quick to put together and delicious. You can make it as spicy as you want but I made mine pretty hotsy totsy. I used jalapeno slices, but if you don’t like heat, you can use the canned green chiles. Those are pretty mild. I used cheddar but Monterey jack cheese is the best.
So, that’s about it….simple post…simple dish.
Cheesy Egg Chorizo Pie
1/4 cup milk
1 large uncooked potato, diced into small cubes
1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey jack cheese
1/2 link of chorizo
1/2 cup diced green chiles (fresh or canned) or sliced jalapenos (pickled)
3 tblsp of sour cream
2 oz cream cheese (cut into small pieces)
Preheat oven to 350 deg.
Remove the chorizo from casing and cook the chorizo thoroughly. Add the diced raw potatoes and the chiles/jalapenos, to the chorizo mixture, giving it a good toss. Dump the mixture into a deep pie plate. Cover with the shredded cheese. Sprinkle the cream cheese and little dollops of the sour cream on top. In a bowl, mix together the eggs and the milk. Pour it over the potato, chile, cheese mixture. Cover with foil and place the pie dish onto a baking sheet and place it in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake uncovered for about 10 minutes or until eggs look set.
Serve with sour cream and salsa. Mm-m-mmmmm
