Hatch Chile Mini-Quiches

I absolutely LOVE New Mexico Hatch Green Chiles!  Not sure what made them so special to my palate, but when it's there harvest time in late July/early August, I can't help but come up with new dishes or try out new recipes that include them.

Finely chopped green chiles

So, last week, one of the dishes I created was Hatch Green Chile Mini-Quiches.  Since I track my nutrition using 21 Day Fix containers these can easily be converted and they contain a lot of veggies.  I also happened to be going through my monthly clean eating challenge at that time, so I also had to ensure the ingredients followed the rules of the challenge.  If you'd like to join one of my free clean eating challenges, head on over to and add your name to my contact form or find me on Facebook - Kara Henson or Facebook - Techifitness.

OK, we really came here for the recipe right?!  I'm so glad you did.

Hatch Green Chile Mini-Quiches 

9 Farm Fresh Eggs
3 C Spinach, chopped
1 C white or yellow onions, diced
3 TBSP chopped cilantro
2-3 roasted New Mexico Hatch Green Chiles (about 1 C), finely chopped
Himalayan Pink Sea Salt (to taste)
Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
Oregano, Marjoram, Chives (fresh or dried, to taste)
Red Chile Powder (opt.)
3 Chicken Sausage Patties (or any lean breakfast sausage), crumbled

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees    
  2. Chop veggies and add to bowl
  3. Beat eggs add to bowl
  4. Add seasonings and mix well (I love eggs with tons of flavor so I use a lot!)
  5. Add in sausage crumbles
Scoop ~1/4 C into muffin tins, coated with cooking spray or lined with foil tins.  I detest cleaning muffin pans, (probably because I only have cheap pans), so I always use foil tins with the paper liner removed.

Bake at 350 degrees for ~25 minutes.

Makes 1 dozen or 6 servings.  Each serving is 1 Red, and 1 Green.

More green chile recipes coming soon!  I'd love to hear what you make with your green chiles.  Share a link to the recipe or share your pictures here or on Facebook!  Show me some green chile love!
