Red Pepper & Spicy Chorizo Quiche

This quiche instantly became one of my favourites. It has spring written all over it, full of flavour but still quite light this delicious quiche makes for a delightful light lunch or starter for an alfresco dinner party. You can of course enjoy it indoors too, it won’t alter the taste one bit, I promise you. It also reminds me of Mexico, maybe because of the spicy kick of the chorizo. If you're a quiche lover like I am you got to give this one a try asap.

  • 1 Greek yogurt
  • 1 cottage cheese

Place the puff pastry on the mold and poke the bottom with a fork. Reserve.Take a frying pan to medium heat with olive oil, onion, and chili and let caramelize lightly.
