Mexican flavors – vibrant, colorful and (egg)citing! Exactly the kind of flavors I want for World Egg Day which is tomorrow 11 October.

Mexican feasts I can do and I often do, because it is a great way to socialize around a meal! Little plates and bowls of deliciousness to share and pick on, is my kind of eating!

When I thought about my meal for World Egg Day, I could think of nothing else but Mexican flavors, but how? I did not have the time to prepare all the Mexican dishes and side dishes, but you know how it is , if your mind is stuck on something…. just follow it!

It was then that the idea of a Mexican Quiche started to form in my head….. tacos, sour cream, corn, chicken, peppers and coriander! I used the taco chips as my base and all the other flavors in the filling. The end result was packed with flavor and crunch all kept together with a savory egg custard!

World Egg Day was established at the IEC ( International Events Calender) in Vienna in 1996 and since then World Egg Day is Celebrated worldwide on the second Friday of October. An egg is an unbeatable package when it comes to versatility and top-quality protein and it is very affordable! Throw convenience and taste into that package and you have a winning combination! Word Egg Days is to create an awareness of the goodness of eggs.

Back to my quiche, I will be serving it with some fresh coriander, a tomato salsa, fresh avocado and  a touch more sour cream!

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 C. Heat a pan on the stove and add the olive oil. Use a sharp knife and cut the corn off the cobs and together with the peppers add it to the pan. Add the salt and saute until the peppers and corn are cooked but not soggy. Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, eggs and grated cheese in a bowl and add the corn mixture. Pour into the prepared quiche pan. use the shredded chicken and place into the egg custard. ( it is important that you use some of the skin of the chicken to add to the smokey flavor of the quiche.) Bake for 45 minutes and switch the oven off. Leave to cool in the oven. Serve with salsa and avocado.
