Queso quiche

I have been wanting to post this recipe for ages. It is a quiche I created for a beer themed potluck. Only I cooked it for the wrong day, so I ended up with a lot of quiche….

Well it was lucky for me, because it turned out pretty delicious, if I can say so myself.

I am thinking this recipe would be great to serve while watching football too!

Queso quiche


  • 9 oz flour
  • 4 oz. butter
  • 2 tbsp beer (from the bottle used for the filling)
  • salt
  • FIlling
  • 1 bottle beer (I recommend a lager style)
  • 1 tbsp flour (I used a mix of spelt and AP you can use whatever you prefer)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 4-5 roasted pepper
  • 3-6 jalapenos
  • Cubed cheese


  1. Mix the flour with the salt and the beer. Cut in the butter and form into a pliable dough, adding more beer if necessary.
  2. Form in a brick, wrap and chill in the fridge.
  3. Filling
  4. Prepare a "bechamel" by melting the butter in a pot. When the butter is melted add the flour and form a roux. Dilute the roux with the beer and keep stirring on the heat until it thickens up. Take off the heat and let it cool down.
  5. Dice the peppers, jalapenos and the cheese.
  6. Assemble:
  7. Roll out the dough into a thin layer and place in a oven pan or cookie sheet. Scatter the diced pepper, jalapenos and cheese on top of the dough.
  8. Add an egg to the "bechamel" and pour over the quiche.
  9. Fold in the dough to create a border.
  10. Bake at 375F for 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set.
