Tasty and low in calories, you can enjoy these delicious quiche squares and not feel at all deprived. They feature fat-free cottage cheese, reduced-fat Mexican-style shredded cheese, green chili peppers, and both eggs and egg whites. These squares are also extremely versatile, since you can serve them as “party food” or as a main course for dinner. They're delicious right out of the oven or cooled to room temperature. To make them into a light lunch or dinner, you can bake in a 9-inch round pie plate and cut into wedges. We think salsa is a good condiment to serve with them.
