1 recipe Deep-Dish Pastry Shell
6 large eggs
2 cups plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper
2 cups chopped cooked chicken (about 10 ounces)
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (6 ounces)
Fresh Salsa (optional)
Prepare Deep-Dish Pastry Shell; set aside on baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
For the custard, in a blender combine the eggs, yogurt, milk, cumin, chili powder, ground chipotle, and salt. Cover and blend until frothy.
Place chicken and cheese in prebaked pastry shell. Pour over custard. Bake 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the custard is barely set in the center (165 degrees F). Let cool in the pan for 40 minutes. With a serrated knife, cut the pastry shell flush with the top of the pan. Carefully remove the springform pan ring. Cut the quiche into wedges. Top with fresh salsa, if desired.
Deep Dish Pastry Shell
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup cold water
In the bowl of a food processor combine the flour and salt. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine the egg and water in a small bowl; add to the food processor and pulse until the mixture just begins to clump together. Transfer the mixture out onto a sheet of plastic wrap; fold the wrap over and press the crumbs until they hold together; shape into a circle. Wrap and chill at least 30 minutes.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to a 15-inch circle.
Carefully roll the pastry around the rolling pin and transfer to a 9×2 1/2-inch springform pan, pressing it into the sides. Trim the overhanging pastry to 1 inch and press it firmly against the outside of the ring to help prevent it from shrinking. Use the trimmings to fill any cracks. Freeze the shell for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the springform pan on a baking sheet. Line the pastry shell with a double thickness of aluminum foil long enough to overhang the sides. Bake about 20 minutes or until the edge of the dough is lightly browned. Remove the foil and continue baking the pastry shell for 10 to 15 minutes longer, or until lightly browned on the bottom. Transfer the baking sheet to a rack and let the pastry cool.
