Chorizo Quiche

As I was sitting at my desk yesterday, I was trying to think through the rest of the week. I had a few recipes that I've been wanting to try, things that seemed rather disconnected and random. The more I thought of it, I quickly realized that this week should be a week of breakfast. Why not keep with the theme? Looking back at previous articles on this website, there have been a fair share of breakfast-related recipes, ranging from Glasgow Potato Scones to Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding to Veggie Hash. But the one thing we have yet to tackle? Quiche.

If I am being honest, I personally have always felt that there has been a stigma attached to quiche. It is a women's breakfast. It is what is served at baby and wedding showers. No matter how delicious the quiche may be, there has always been that connotation. I am here to wipe the slate clean. Throw away any preconceived ideas you may have an embrace the future with open arms. A new dawn is upon us. Men and women alike can enjoy the deliciousness of quiche.

By added chorizo with cilantro and fresno peppers, I took a traditionally light fluffy dish and gave it a kick. Just enough kick to give you that extra kick in your step in the morning.
