“Spicy Mexican quiche. This is the recipe that I first came to Recipezaar to find. I requested the recipe, but no one could help me, so I made it up from memory in order to take it to a dinner party my friend was having. Sometime later, after my cookbooks were out of storage, I was able to locate the original recipe. This is pretty darn close.”
