Packed with corn, green chiles, and pepperjack cheese, this Southwest Bacon and Caramelized Onion Quiche will turn your brunch into a flavor fiesta!
Hey, May. I can’t wait for you to get here. Because when you come to town, I know I can count on a couple things. The weather will finally stop being a jerkface. Flowers and trees will remember its finally time to wake the heck up. And… just around the corner is Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day.
It’s no secret I’m pretty obsessed with anything that even mildly resembles Mexican and Tex-Mex flavors. Thus, Cinco de Mayo is hands down my favorite non-major holiday of the year. And we can thank my mom for that. She got me hooked on the flavors early in life, as she’s quite famous within the vast circles of our immediate family for her chicken fajitas (which is really just out of some generic, random cookbook she has stored in the cabinet). It used to be a weekly staple in our house… and even to this day, if she wants my brother and I to come over for dinner, she’ll lure us in with those darn fajitas.
So since Mother’s Day is just a few day’s after Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to create a brunch recipe that celebrated the flavors my mom brought to the table each week. Something like this Southwest Bacon and Caramelized Onion Quiche with Corn, Green Chiles, and Pepperjack Cheese. It’s basically a giant flavor fiesta for your pie hole. Cue the mariachi band.
Have you ever seen one of those #pinterestfail round-ups? If you haven’t… you need to. They are freaking hysterical. I had one of those at one point, and it involved a quiche. Mine looked more like soup in a pie-crust bowl. Since that day, I kinda had a fear of making homemade quiche.
But this one is totally fool-proof. It’s super easy. Super quick. And you’re pretty much guaranteed an epic quiche experience.
So, mom… here’s to you. Thanks for being you. Because you are really awesome, and are so appreciated. Let’s discuss said appreciation over some Southwest Bacon and Caramelized Onion Quiche. And mimosas 🙂
