8 eggs
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 cup crumbled queso fresco or 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar or pepper Jack cheese

*Chorizo, a spicy Mexican pork sausage, is flavored with garlic and chilies. It is available in most supermarkets. If it is not available, substitute 8 ounces bulk pork sausage plus 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper.

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 10-inch quiche dish or deep-dish pie plate.
  2. Remove sausage from casings. Crumble sausage into medium skillet. Cook over medium heat until sausage is browned, stirring to break up meat. Remove from heat; pour off drippings. Cool 5 minutes.
  3. Beat eggs in medium bowl. Add spinach, cheese, cream and sausage; mix well. Pour into prepared quiche dish. Bake 20 minutes or until center is set. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting into wedges. Serve with salsa.
