Easy Taco Ranch Quiche
Quiche is a favorite in our house, and this Taco Ranch Quiche is no exception. Taco meat tossed with Ranch dressing and cheese, baked in a pie crust with a creamy egg mixture. YUM! We love to eat this for lunch or dinner. It tastes great hot out of the oven or reheated. Simply top the quiche with some sour cream, salsa, cilantro and guacamole and you are set!
How to Make Taco Ranch Quiche
This Taco Ranch Quiche is super easy to make. Start by browning the ground beef with some diced tomatoes and green chiles. Add the taco seasoning and ranch dressing to the cooked meat and place in the bottom of a frozen deep-dish pie crust. Top the meat with some shredded cheese. Finally, whisk together the eggs and cream and pour in the pie crust. Pop in the oven and you are done!
Feel free to swap the ground beef for ground turkey. I used shredded cheddar cheese for this Taco Ranch Quiche. Feel free to swap the cheddar for your favorite cheese. Mexican Cheese Blend, Monterey Jack, White Cheddar or Pepper Jack cheese all sound delicious!
Can I Make Quiche in Advance?
Absolutely! You can make this Taco Ranch Quiche the night before and refrigerate until ready to bake.
Can I Freeze Quiche?
YES! I LOVE to freeze quiche! You can freeze the quiche baked or unbaked. I prefer to freeze the quiche unbaked. To bake the quiche after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below. I usually double the recipe so I can bake one now and freeze one for later.
If freezing the baked or leftover quiche, thaw completely before reheating in the microwave or coved in the oven.
What to Serve with Taco Ranch Quiche
