The Best Chorizo Quiche Recipe!


This chorizo quiche with homemade buttery flaky pie crust is always a hit! It’s a recipe my mother-in-law has been making for years and it’s literally the best quiche ever!

The flavor of this quiche is so delicious, it’s perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner! It’s amazing served with our salad that goes with everything. The filling is incredibly easy to make and homemade buttery flaky crust is a no fail recipe. This recipe has chorizo, but you can make it vegetarian by simply leaving it out.

Ingredients in a Chorizo Quiche

  • Cooked broccoli
  • Cooked chorizo
  • Heavy cream
  • Jarlsberg cheese
  • Eggs
  • Onions
  • Nutmeg
  • Salt + Pepper

This recipe does not use flour in the filling, but the buttery flaky crust has flour. The crust is one of my favorite all time crusts for pies and pastries too!


Can I make a quiche ahead of time?

You can absolutely make the crust and filling ahead of time! Make them both separately and pour the filling into the crust when it’s ready to be baked. You can keep the crust in the refrigerator or freezer.

Crust for a Quiche

There are a few options for the crust depending, you can make our buttery crust, buy store-bought pie crust in the freezer section or make a quiche without a crust. It’s similar to a frittata but the texture is different. All of these options make it easy to make this quiche. Also, if you like quiche you’ll love our frittata recipe too! Its’ always a hit!!


How to Make a Quiche

Cook the broccoli and the chorizo before. Then add the cream, eggs, cheese and onions, spices, salt and pepper and the broccoli and chorizo in a medium bowl and whisk until everything is combined. Pour it into the prepared pie curst, either frozen pie crust or homemade, give the crust an egg wash and then bake in 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

The broccoli in this quiche is delicious! It adds so much flavor and the color is a plus too.

Chorizo Quiche Filling

  • 1 1/2 cup cooked broccoli
  • 1/2 cup cooked chorizo
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Jarlsberg cheese
  • 3 large organic eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Buttery Flaky Crust

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound unsalted cold butter, 2 sticks
  • 1/4 cup cold crisco
  • 1/3 cup ice water more or less depending on the consistency of the dough


Buttery Flaky Crust

  1. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar and salt.

  2. Cut 2 sticks butter into small chunks and add to the flour mixture. With your hands or a pastry cutter, blend until butter chunks are the size of peas.

  3. Add in Crisco and with your hands combine. It should resemble course crumbs. This mixture should remain dry and powdery.

  4. Add ice water and mix dough with hands until combined. The dough should hold a loose ball and be more on the dry side. It should look rough.

  5. Roll the dough out and fit it into the pie dish. You can refrigerate freeze it for 30 minutes in the pie dish, which I recommend doing.

Chorizo Quiche Filling

  1. Steam the broccoli until it's cooked and set aside. 

  2. In a skillet heat a little oil and remove the casing from he chorizo. Cook the ground chorizo. It can be a little liquidy. 

  3. Add all of the quiche ingredients in a bowl and whisk until incorporated. 

  4. Poor the mixture into the prepare buttery flaky crust pie dish

  5. Beat 1 egg and brush over the crust before baking. 

  6. Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes until the quiche is golden brown and the middle has set.

    It does not say how much flour to use for the crust.
