Chorizo & Chard Quichata

Yes, I meant quichata. This is my version of a quiche crossed with a frittata, including dough and super fluffy eggs. Bonus, I baked it in a Dutch oven. With just a few delicious ingredients, you can make yourself a quichata too!


For the Dough:
1 Large Egg
2 1/2 Tbsp Ice Water
1 1/2 Cup Flour
Tsp Salt
8 Tbsp Butter, Cubed

For the Filling:
4 – 5 Eggs
1/4 – 1/2 Cup Cheese
1 Cup Sliced Swish Chard Leaves
1 Tbsp Garlic
1/2 an Onion – I used red and yellow onions
1 Serrano Chili – for spice
Up to 1lb Chorizo or Sausage
Olive Oil – for frying

What To Do:

  1. First in a small bowl, whisk together the egg and ice water. Set aside.
  2. In a food processor bowl, add the flour and salt. Pulse briefly until mixed.  Add in the cubed butter pieces and pulse until the mixture is coarse. Add in the egg/ice-water mixture. Pulse again until a dough forms.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a lightly-floured board and roll out the crust so it fits in your Dutch oven. Slightly pat the dough into place, and if you want, even the top with a knife. I left mine as is.
  4. Add some of your cheese to the bottom.
  5. Heat a pan of olive oil, and toss in your garlic. 30ish seconds after, add the Swiss chard, and cook until tender. About 1 – 2 minutes. Evenly distribute into your quiche.
  6. In the same pan, sauté the onions and Serrano chili until tender, then distribute onto your quiche.
  7. In the same pan, cook your chorizo until done. Add some more of your cheese last minute, then, again, evenly distribute onto your quiche.
  8. Top with the rest of your cheese.
  9. In a separate bowl, mix all your eggs with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, then completely cover your quiche.
  10. Cover your Dutch oven with the lid, and cook for 20 minutes.

Wow! That was delicious, we ate half a quiche between the two of us 😮
