“Box Stew” Quiche

Remember this?

That was one the items from Aunt Barbara’s clever “cabinet stew in a box”  Christmas gift to me.

Well after I made a toasted tortilla snack with some, the rest went to the fridge to await another use.


I just love using up random ingredients in quiche.

You can almost put anything in them – they are quick, easy and can be eaten all week as a snack, lunch or dinner. That is what we do in my house.

So this quiche has some cubed cooked ham, the rest of that jar of corn salsa and some shredded Monterey Jack Cheese.

You could easily leave out the ham to make this vegetarian.

You could also add a few black beans to make it more filling.

Ironically my friend over at The Perfect Pantry just posted about Quiche Lorraine. There is actually some interesting history behind that traditional form of quiche.

In the meantime….enjoy my southwest version of this classic.
