Potato and Chorizo Mini Quiches

Chef John 21737

"This little baked bite is very loosely based on the Spanish Tortilla, and not only is it dead simple to make, but the versatility of the technique allows this to be adapted to any occasion."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly coat 24 mini-muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir chorizo in the hot oil until golden brown, about 4 minutes.
  3. Stir diced potato into chorizo; increase heat to medium and cook potatoes until tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
  4. Sprinkle 1 to 2 teaspoons of grated cheese in the bottom of each muffin cup. Top with 1 to 2 tablespoons chorizo mixture.
  5. Beat eggs, cayenne pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl until combined. Pour egg mixture evenly into muffin cups. Lightly tap the pans to remove any air bubbles. Transfer to a baking sheet and top with any remaining cheese.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until eggs golden brown and just set, about 17 minutes.

These are amazing little tasty bites. and so easy to put together. Just the right size for an appy, brunch or cocktail party. I did use the Manchego cheese, which is a little pricey but well w...

I bought Mexican Chorizo and it did not look like the chorizo in the video -- it was soft and in a plastic casing that had to be removed. Therefore, I cooked it in a pan with the potatoes and d...

I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. The only substitution I made was for mild cheddar since I lived in Germany at the time and Manchego was non-existent in that market. These are really easy to ...

I'm giving this recipe 5 stars for several reasons. One was because it was very easy to make. I had some vegetarian chorizo in the freezer, not completely knowing what I was going to make, then...

These were delicious, flew off the plate!

Easy recipe to make and a wonderful flavor especially with the garlic aioli

These mini quiches were adorable and delicious! I used 1 regular sized muffin tin and baked for about 20 minutes, but my oven runs hot. I used 9 eggs and probably could have done with one more...

Disappointing. I followed the recipe using soy chorizo (shame on me, but that's what the snooty upscale grocery store with initials WF carried). I wasn't very competent on doing the ol' shake-a-...

Mine stuck to the pan :( maybe because I used olive oil pan spray. I will try again using baking/cooking spray. Will also only add cheese to the top and add some green onions inside the mix.
