Mexican Quiche

Finding new healthy recipes has become something I love to do! I get bored very easily so adding in a new recipe or two or three each week keeps me on my toes in the kitchen.  Yes I hear quite often from others they don't have time to cook, well neither do I!! BUT making healthy dinners is a priority for me and my family and so I make the time to COOK!!

I try every now and then to spice up the eggs and that is how I came upon this recipe for Mexican Quiche!! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!

After that it was all about learning how to change some of my eating habits and from their healthy habits were formed.
