Directions Step-By-Step

1
Fill a pot with cold water and put in diced potatoes cook for 15 minutes. Saute chorizo in pan with a tbs. of olive oil. Drain potatoes an add to the pan with chorizo in it. Cook for 5 minute until potatoes brown a little. Turn off heat and let them cool down.
2
Get your pie crust ready in your pie plates. Add 1/4 of the cheeses in the bottom of each pie crust so when the custard cooks it won't seep through and make the pie crust soggy. In a large bowl add half and half, eggs, cheese, some salt and pepper about a 1/4 and a teaspoon of salt and pepper. Divide potato mixture between both pie plates add olives and green onions to both.
3
Add half of the egg mixture to one pie and the rest to the other. Cook in a 400 degree preheated oven for 30 minutes. Let it cool for 1 hour so the eggs can set.
