Hatch Chile Corn Quiche

I remember how long the days were when my kids were young and Dad occasionally went out of town. When this happened the kids and I jumped into our often ritual of having breakfast for dinner. They couldn’t wait for those berry-good waffles or the pancakes drenched in syrup. Today, I miss those days. Now that the kids are gone and I still crave those nights. Over the years I have set aside my secret batch of breakfast ideas for nights when I’m alone. I decided a quick quiche was my answer especially with these warm summer nights we have been having. It continues to be Hatch Chile season, and while the next recipe on my radar screen happens to be a Hatch Chile Quiche, I thought I would try it.  As I took a bite, the delicate egg flavor takes a hit with an earthy mild heat which compliments the eggs beautifully. This quiche is seasonal, so make it today.

Quick tip: I had my BBQ out, so I roasted the hatch chiles ahead of time, placed them in a plastic bag and refrigerated them for future recipes, You can also cut them up and freeze them in small batches if you like. Defrost them and pat them dry for your next muffin or main dish. Learn how to roast them here: How to Roast /BBQ Hatch Chiles.

Hatch chile season is short. Take advantage of the ample chiles in the markets, but remember to roast and peel them and place in the freezer for future recipes throughout the year!

I have a bag of Hatch roasted/peeled/chopped chiles (I cheated and got them at Trader Joe’s). Can you guesstimate how much of it I should measure to get what you got from 3 chiles? Thanks so much – this recipe looks delicious!

Hi Jen,
Perhaps it comes to about 1/2 cup of chopped chilies. Of course it depends on the size of the chilies.
Best of luck,
