Corn Tortilla Quiche

Mom shared this recipe with me in 2002. It is top, right in the picture with the Sweet Corn Cake.

3/4 # pork sausage
5 corn tortillas (6 inch)
1 cup shredded jack cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped canned green chilies
6 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

Crumble and cook the sausage. Drain.

Place 4 tortillas in a greased 9" pie pan, overlapping and extending 1/2" beyond the rim. Place the last tortilla in the center.

Add sausage, then cheeses, then chilies.

Combine eggs, cream, cottage cheese, chili powder and cilantro. Pour slowly into the dish.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, or until center is set and knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cut into wedges to serve.
