4 flour tortillas or hubby used 1 LARGE burrito flour tortilla
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 (3-ounce) can chopped chili peppers (optional)
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or monterey jack cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream
Toppings (see below)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a quiche dish. (Hubby used a 9 inch glass dish and didn't have to tear the large tortilla. It fit perfect). Line the quiche dish with the flour tortillas, tearing to fit. NOTE Only use one (1) layer of tortillas in the quiche dish.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, saute the ground beef and onions until the beef is cooked; remove from heat and drain of any excess fat. Add garlic, chili peppers, chili powder, salt, oregano, and cumin, stirring to combine the ingredients. Spoon the beef mixture into the tortilla-lined quiche pan.
Spoon the shredded cheese over the meat mixture.
In a small bowl, beat the eggs well. Blend in the sour cream. Pour egg mixture on top of the cheese in the quiche pan.
Baked approximately 45 to 50 minutes until the eggs are set. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving. When ready to serve, top with the toppings of your choice.
