Dinner Time - Sweet Chorizo Quiche in Masa crust

After the tamale pies turned out so well, I started thinking about other places I could substitute the Masa crust I used in them for flour based crusts, and Quiche was my first thought.  I love a good manly quiche.  Pork fat makes it seem better to me than veggies, so that's the direction I tend to go.  Since I tend to think of Masa as a south-west ingredient, I went that direction with the ingredients for this quiche.  It has a great combination of sweet and savory due to the combination of spice in the sausage and the sweetness of the condensed milk.


1 1/2 cups Masa Harina flour

3/4 cup Chicken Broth

1/3 cup corn oil



1 lb Chorizo sausage

2 tbs. Masa Harina

1 cup shredded Sharp cheddar cheese

1/2 cup Cojita cheese

2 eggs

1 can sweetened condensed milk



1. Preheat oven to 350

2.  Combine ingredients for crust, mixing thouroughly until dough holds together.  Cover and set aside.

3.  Brown Chorizo in skillet.  Add Masa until it all is coating the sausage.

4.  Press dough into deep pie pan, ensuring it is even across bottom and around sides (1/4 to 1/3 inch thick)

5.  Add sausage to unbaked crust.

6.  Add cheese over meat

7.  Combine eggs and milk, pour over cheese

8.  Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, until knife to center comes out clean.

9.  Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes to set

Bacon....wait for it....Jam!

Yes, you read that right.  Bacon Jam.

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest, and the idea seemed too good to pass up.  Bacon Jam??!??  Are you kidding me? How could I not make something called Bacon Jam?

The flavors of the salty bacon combine with the brown sugar, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar to make an amazing flavor profile that cannot be missed.  I will be making more of this as soon as what I have now is gone.

Now this is why we call the place Fat Boy Heaven!
