Chalupa Quiche

What do you do with leftover chalupa? Well, for starters, you just reheat it and eat it just like you did the first time! Yummy! But when that gets old (which may take a while because it's so good), what do you do next? You make a quiche! This recipe can also be used with other leftovers - see bottom of recipe.

1 cup plain yogurt (or milk or cottage cheese)
1/4 cup water
2-3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup flour
1/2 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup leftover chalupa

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Pour into a greased 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until set.

-To use up other leftovers, replace the 1/2 cup chalupa with 1/4 cup chopped cooked meat and 1/4 cup chopped cooked vegetables.
-The flour in the filling eliminates the need for a crust. If you prefer a crusty quiche, don't add the flour, add another egg, and pour everything into a 9-inch unbaked pie crust. Bake for 10 minutes in preheated 425 oven, turn oven down to 350 and bake additional 45 minutes until knife inserted comes out clean. I haven't tried this, but looking at other quiche recipes, it should work.
