Vegetarian Hangover Breakfast ~ Chiles Rellenos Quiche

Print Friendly and PDF

This recipe is so good, I find myself making it often for overnight guests or for any mealtime really.  It’s creamy, smoky, light, slightly spicy, crunchy and full of protein so it stays with you.  A GREAT HANG OVER CURE FOR YOUR VEGETARIAN FRIENDS.

Pastry for single-crust 9 inch pie
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 can chopped green chilies
4 eggs
¾ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
1 Diced fresh tomato optional


Prepare crust according to directions (or do store bought readymade crust if you are too hungover to make crust from scratch). Bake at 450° for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce heat to 350°.  When crust is cool, add the cheeses; set aside 1/2 cup for topping.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, sour cream, chilies, cilantro and hot pepper sauce.  Pour mixture over cheese into crust; sprinkle with reserved cheese mixture and optional diced fresh tomatoes.  Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. (Depending on the size of the hangover, and for your non-vegetarian pals, serve with a huge side of bacon, Tylenol & Mimosas)
