These Mexican Taco Boat Quiches are the perfect little breakfast. They’re super easy to make and just delicious! The egg custard, taco seasoning, veggies and cheese are baked right in a soft flour tortilla bowl.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I don’t just enjoy the usual breakfast meals for breakfast either. I often serve breakfast items for lunch or dinner. Breakfast, brunch, brinner. I’m always up for anything egg, pancake, French toast, breakfast casserole, whatev. I’m in.
And these Mexican Taco Boat Quiches…you’re gonna love ’em.
Why You’ll Love this Recipe
I use Old El Pasco Soft Tortilla Bowls as the crust to make this recipe beyond easy.
This recipe is so versatile. Not up for Mexican flavors, simply swap out the Ro-Tel diced tomatoes and green chilies for what you’re in the mood for. Broccoli, mushrooms, ham, sausage…whatever floats your boat. (See what I did there?)
These little boat quiches take less than 15 minutes to make and just about 30 to bake and they’re great for any meal of the day really.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Soft Flour Tortilla Bowls (I use Old El Paso)
- half and half
- taco seasoning
- hot sauce (use your favorite)
- kosher salt and pepper
- Ro-Tel diced tomatoes and green chilies
- green onions (sorry, I forgot to grab the bowl of onions for the photo, so close your eyes and make pretend ok?)
- Colby Jack cheese
A shortcut is always welcome in my kitchen, so I just love subbing in the soft flour tortilla boats for pie crusts here.
I love the Mexican flavors of the quiches I’m sharing for today’s recipe, but I’ve also made these with the ingredients for a Denver omelette, onions, peppers, ham and cheese which we really enjoy too.
These boat quiches take no time to make.
First, you’ll grab a bowl and whisk together your eggs, half and half, taco seasoning, hot sauce and kosher salt and pepper.
Next up, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place your soft tortilla bowls on your baking sheet and equally divide your Ro-Tel tomatoes and green chilies, your green onions and lastly your shredded Colby Jack among the bowls.
Carefully pour the custard mixture into each of the bowls. The filling ingredients do not need to be fully covered. You will just divide the mixture evenly among the 8 soft tortilla bowls. Take a peek at my photo below. ↓
The last step is to bake these bad boys for about 30 minutes. You will notice the custard mixture will start to puff up and lightly brown and the center will be set. No jiggling.
If you enjoy these for breakfast you can serve with toast or hash browns and if you serve for lunch you can serve with a nice side salad.
I really hope you guys give these a try because I know you’ll love them!

A Few Cook’s Notes for Mexican Taco Boat Quiches
Make sure to drain your Ro-Tel tomatoes and chilies well so you don’t have a watery egg custard mixture.
As I mentioned above, I also added some chopped green onions to my quiches, but I forgot to add them to my ingredients photo above.
I used a tablespoon of Hank’s Sauce Camouflage Hot Sauce for my quiches because it’s our favorite. Use whatever you prefer and add as much as you prefer. One tablespoon worked well for us.
