Fluffy Green Chile Quiche - get the recipe at Barefeet In The Kitchen!

Flaky pie crust filled with fluffy, creamy eggs, spicy green chile, and cheese adds up to a delicious breakfast any day of the week. Eggs and green chile are two of my family’s favorite breakfast ingredients, so it could come as no surprise that my entire crew loved this simple quiche.

We ate this for lunch, but it would make a great breakfast or dinner as well. Served with fruit and bacon, or with a simple salad, this is a meal sure to disappear in a flash.

Looking for a low carb or gluten free option? I make crustless quiche more often than not, although I do enjoy both kinds. If you love the crust and don’t want to give it up, here’s a link to the best gluten free pie crust ever!

Quiche is one of the most versatile and forgiving of all make-ahead breakfast options. You can prepare the crust and filling a day ahead and wait to assemble and bake it.

Alternatively, you can bake the quiche ahead of time and reheat when ready to serve. You can freeze the whole quiche once it has been baked or freeze leftover portions for easy reheating and quick breakfasts.

Servings: 8 servings


  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup chopped roasted green chile frozen or canned is fine
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 prepared pie crust, store-bought is fine


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper. Place the crust in a deep pie plate or round 9"pan. Prick the crust with a fork several times. Spread the green chile across the bottom of the crust and then cover with cheese. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese and chile.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Reduce the heat to 300 degrees and bake an additional 30-40 minutes, until the quiche is puffy and lightly browned. Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
  • FREEZER INSTRUCTIONS: Let the quiche cool completely. Cover tightly with foil and freeze until ready to use. Thaw completely in the refrigerator and then warm covered with foil in the oven or slice and warm individual servings in the microwave. You can also freeze individual servings of leftover quiche in airtight containers or ziploc bags. Simply warm in the microwave when ready to serve.

    Absolutely delicious and easy to make. I prepared the recipe as written and it was perfect. I’m already making it again for friends.5 stars

    I’m a green chile quiche connoisseur and this is a very good recipe. Some people said it needs more cheese. I disagree. The amount is perfect to add a bit of salty creaminess without overpowering the chiles. It is already very decadent with the cup of heavy cream, but the proportions allow the great flavors of the chiles to shine. It shouldn’t taste like pizza.5 stars
