Tex-Mex quiche

Easy to make and full of flavour, this Tex-Mex quiche is a lunchtime winner!   I was talking to my lovely friend Katrin (who blogs over Sugar Free Londoner) the other day about pastry alternatives, and realised that it was ages since I had made my favourite pastry-alternative quiche, using a sweet potato crust.
