We both really liked this quiche, although I will say that it is quite spicy so if you prefer a milder quiche clean out the seeds from the jalapenos. I left the seeds in one of the jalapenos even though the recipe says to leave them in both, but I knew that would be too spicy for me, and even with one it was still hot!
1 frozen pie crust, defrosted
1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature
2 jalapenos, diced
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
5 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 jalapeno, sliced
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400.
Place the pie crust in a 9 inch pie pan, prick the bottom of the crust with a fork and bake for 10 minutes.
While the pie crust is baking, heat the milk and cream in a small saucepan until barely simmering.
When the pie crust has baked for 10 minutes, remove from oven and lower the oven to 350. Spread the softened cream cheese over the bottom of the crust, and top with the diced jalapenos.
In a bowl lightly beat the 5 eggs, and slowly add the warm milk and cream. Stir in the spices.
Pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and top with 8 jalapeno slices, bake for 10 minutes. Then top with the grated cheese and bake for 5 minutes.
