One of Carla's grandmother's original Cuban recipes.

Carla's comments:

My mother prefers this recipe without the scotch bonnet peppers.. ..but this dish only has a hint of it and is a nice fiery way to enjoy a quiche! If you prefer the Jamaican version of this recipe, just add a bit more Tropical Sun scotch bonnet pepper sauce.

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6), [fan oven 180° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour]


Method

  1. Make the crust: Combine flour, butter, and salt in a food processor, and pulse until pea-size crumbles form. Add cream and egg, and pulse until dough forms. Shape dough into a disk, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for a least 1 hour.
  2. Roll dough until ¼″ thick; using a 4″ round cutter, cut out 8 circles and transfer each circle to a muffin tin cup, forming pleats on the sides so it fits in the cup. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Heat butter in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat; add garlic, onion, pepper, and chile sauce, and cook, stirring until softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; stir in 6 oz. cheddar, spinach, milk, and eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Divide evenly among muffin cups, and sprinkle tops with remaining cheddar.
  4. Bake until golden brown and set, about 30 minutes.
