Have you tried Ground Beef Taco Quiche? If you like Mexican cuisine and quiche, then you are going to love this Ground Beef Taco Quiche. This pie is creamy and full of delicious spices. So let’s spice up the classic quiche with a little Mexican flare!
You have the option to use a store-bought pie crust for this recipe, making it incredibly quick and easy to assemble. Alternatively, crafting your own pie crust is remarkably simple, speedy, and uncomplicated.
How to make the Pie crust
- Really cold butter and ice-cold water make the pie crust extra crispy.
- Cut the butter into small pieces.
- Pinch together flour and butter by hand or mix in a food processor to a crumbly mass.
- Add the cold water and mix quickly to a dough. Press the dough into a pie tin (approx. 25-28 cm (9,5-11 inch) in diameter). Notch the bottom with a fork.
- Cover the pie dough edge with foil! When you pre-baked the pie crust, there is a risk that the top edge will be overbaked towards the end of the baking. Tear out a narrow strip of aluminum foil and cover the edge to prevent the pie dough from burning at the top.
- Preheat oven to 200° C (392° F). Pre-bake the pie crust in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile your pie crust is in the oven start with the filling
How to make Ground Beef Taco Filling
- Brown 500 gram (1 pound) ground meat over medium heat until no pink remains.
- Add taco seasoning. You can use store-bought but I really recommend you to use some Homemade Taco Seasoning. Mix the seasoning into the minced meat while stirring . Add 100 ml (1/2 Cup) water and let it simmer for a few minutes until the sauce thickens.
Assemble the pie
- Dice the cheese (Gouda or Cheddar).
- Whisk the eggs with milk and whipping cream. Add salt and pepper.
- Take the pre-baked pie crust from the oven. Fill it with ground beef taco and cheese. Pour the egg mixture over it.
- Bake for 30 minutes at 200° C.
- Garnish with sour cream/Greek yoghurt and cilantro.
