Gluten Free Mexican Mini Quiches Recipe


Do you remember “impossible pies”? They are pies that form their own crusts while baking, made with Bisquick mix, eggs, milk and such – sometimes sweet and sometimes savory; more like a casserole than a pie. They were quite in vogue several years back – in fact I think my grandmother must have had at least 100 different “impossible pie” recipes.

It is no secret that I love Mexican food and I decided to make up my own gluten free version of an impossible pie except I wanted them individual-sized – so I guess you could call them impossible muffins.

Now I suppose it would have been easy as could be to just grab some gluten free Bisquick but I didn’t have any so I just added some gluten free all-purpose flour and baking powder to the rest of my ingredients.

The rest of the ingredients consisted of a rotisserie chicken (my grocery store makes gluten free rotisserie chickens, double check with your store), some shredded cheese, a small can of mild green chilies, a good handful of chives and cilantro, some buttermilk, sour cream and to hold everything together, a couple of organic pastured eggs (I use Nature’s Yoke.) The result? A chicken ranch enchilada in muffin (or mini quiche) form. I topped them with a bit of salsa and some more sour cream and what I got was yum, yum, yum!

We had a hot debate as to what to call these yummy babies – Mexican muffins? Savory cupcakes? Mini quiches? I never really came up with the perfect recipe title but I know this, I would never call these “impossible” anything. Not only are they seriously simple, they show just how “possible” great gluten free food can be!

    FYI – These were absolutely as good as they looked! I swapped out for dairy free options and it was still fantastic.

    I want to try this out for my daughter-in-law…looks great for everyone! Question: Is the cup of salsa for just a serving garnish or is it included into the mix before baking?

      Hi, the salsa is just to garnish the tops for serving.
