A Tasty Quiche With A Touch of Mexico

This week’s Tuesday Lunch menu featured one of our favorite quiche recipes. It’s a tasty and satisfying dish with a hint of Mexico. Enjoy! 

Oh, and if you’re not in the mood to make it yourself, but would love to try it…. our chefs made a few extra for our Dinners on Demand™ freezers. Stop by The Kitchen Shop at The Culinary Center of Kansas City™ to pick one up.
