Mexican Cornbread Quiche

This dish is deliciously different from traditional quiches with a pastry crust. The corn bread base gives a nice country-style texture, while green chilies add a subtle zest.

    This tasted ok. I had all the ingredients except chilies. I'll be having this for breakfast for many days. It's bland but the good thing though is that it sustains me for a very long time...
