This is my own version of a dish I found in a cookbook several years ago. Mine is for a large amount, as I always make enough for another meal or give to someone.

It can adjust easily to accoomodate the amount of servings you want. It has potatoes, cheese and someone said it tastes like Quiche, so (Pocheequi) became the name for my casserole.

It has a little spice to it because I use the Chilies. Those who did not eat spicy food, ate this and raved about it. It's great for potlucks, buffets, breakfast or just a snack. With a salad it can be a main course. Enjoy!

How to Make Pocheequi (Pronounced PO-Chee-Key)


  1. PREPARATION: Spray 17" X14" pan with pan spray to prevent sticking and faster clean-up. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

    (1) Mix together: eggs, milk, sour cream and salt and pepper. I always add a little more salt since potatoes will absorb a great deal of it. Remember that Cheese has salt in it also.
  2. (2) Combine cheeses.

    (3) Mix together your onions and chilies of choice

    (4) Layer potatoes in bottom of pan. Next layer onion and peppers of choice. Next layer your cheeses. If you have room to layer another, do so in same order, ending with cheese.

    (5) Pour egg mixuture over all and cover with foi.
  3. Bake covered for 1 hour. Remove cover and bake for another thirty minutes or until nicely browned.

    Set aside to set for about 10 minutes. Cut into squares.

    Good reheated. Will keep in refrigerator for up to three days.
