Ingredients
  1. ½ lb lean ground beef (about 2 cups once cooked)
  2. 1 teaspoon chili powder
  3. ¾ teaspoon cumin
  4. ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  5. ½ teaspoon salt
  6. ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  7. ⅛ teaspoon paprika
  8. ½ cup finely diced red pepper
  9. 2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
  10. 36 wonton wrappers (about 3" in diameter)
  11. 5 large eggs
  12. ½ cup milk
  13. ¼ teaspoon salt
  14. 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  15. 1 cup shredded lettuce, optional, for serving
  16. 1 cup finely diced tomatoes, optional, for serving
  17. 1 cup salsa, optional, for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium pan over medium-high heat, cook ground beef, chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt, oregano and paprika for 2-3 minutes, stirring often. Add red pepper and cook another 4-5 minutes, until beef is browned and peppers are tender crisp. Remove from heat and stir in green onion.
  3. In a greased muffin pan (you will need 18 muffin cups), fit one wonton wrapper, and then fit another wonton wrapper directly on top of that one,staggering the edges if possible (so that they cover as much of the sides of the muffin cup as possible). Repeat until your 18 "crusts" are done.
  4. In each wonton crust, spoon about 1 tablespoon of beef mixture. Sprinkle with about 1 teaspoon of cheddar cheese.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk and salt and whisk until combined. Ladle over beef mixture in wontons, filling about ⅔ full (keep in mind that eggs puff as they bake!).
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until eggs are set in the center of each quiche.
  7. Serve warm with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and your favorite salsa.
Notes
  1. *Make ahead: you can prep the beef mixture and store in the refrigerator up to 24-48 hours in advance. Then simply lay your wontons, mix up your eggs and build your quiche before baking!
