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 Green Chile Quiche.

Make-Ahead Quiche

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 later.

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

What To Serve With Quiche

If you’re a fan of make-ahead meals in general, don’t think of quiche as a breakfast-only option. We’ve eaten quiche for breakfast, lunch, and dinner more times than I can count.

I love quiche for a weekend brunch or lunch, but it’s also a terrific light dinner. Served with a rainbow fruit salad and bacon, or with a spinach salad, this is a meal sure to disappear in a flash.

Green Chile Quiche Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. 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.
  2. Spread the green chile across the bottom of the crust and then cover with cheese. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese and chile.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes at 425°F. 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.
Quiche is the ultimate make-ahead meal. Serve it hot or cold.

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!

For the meat-lover’s in your life, this Cheesy Bacon Quiche is a guaranteed win.

This Caramelized Onion, Bacon and Gruyere Quiche sounds heavenly and I have it on my list to try soon.

If the Green Chile Quiche thrills you, you’ll want to try this Potato, Bacon, and Chipotle Pepper Quiche as well. (This is another crustless option, but feel free to bake it in a crust too.)

Hearty, cheesy quiche with green chile

    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

      I’ve added a half cup of cooked and crumbled bacon and it was delicious, Deb. You could also do that with sausage, just make sure it’s crumbled well. Enjoy!
