Jalapeno Popper Quiche with bacon and cream cheese is just the quiche when you want something a little spicy.
When you think of spicy foods, you don’t typically think of quiches, but they are perfect for spicing up.
This Jalapeno Popper Quiche has plenty of cheese flavor from cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese.
And since Jalapeno Poppers usually have cream cheese, I added 4 ounces of softened cream cheese to the filling. It makes the filling all the more creamier and richer.
I used canned jalapeno peppers for the filling. You can use fresh, but they might not soften up all the way unless you roast them first or cook them in a pan until they soften.
I sliced a fresh jalapeno into circles and arranged them on top of the quiche for even more jalapeno flavor.
With lots of heat and plenty of crispy, salty crumbled bacon, this is a spicy quiche you’ll enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
