Chicken Enchilada Quiche Recipe

This Chicken Enchilada Quiche Recipe is great, When I first was introduced to the idea of putting enchilada ingredients into a pie crust I was like “why didn’t we think of this sooner!”.  I often make this recipe and omit the chicken because my brother is a vegetarian, the only problem with this is most of the protein content comes from the chicken so keep that in mind if you plan to make this vegetarian.
