    1 1/2  C.            shredded Cheddar cheese (6 oz.)
    3                    eggs -- slightly beaten
    1 1/2  C.            half and half
      1/2  Tsp.          salt
      1/8  Tsp.          pepper

                         chopped tomatoes
                         shredded lettuce
 
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Let frozen pastry shell stand at
 room temperature for 10 minutes. Do not prick the pastry
 shell. In a small bowl mix avocados, garlic and lemon juice.
 Stir in one chopped tomato, one tablespoon green chilies and
 hot pepper sauce. Cover and refrigerate. Bake pastry shell 7
 minutes. Remove from oven; set aside. 
 Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees. In a medium skillet combine ground
 beef, onion,
 remaining green chilies and taco seasoning mix. Cook over
 medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until ground beef is
 browned and onion is tender. Drain ground beef mixture. Layer
 cheese and then ground beef mixture in the pastry shell. In a
 medium bowl combine eggs, half and half, salt and pepper. Beat
 with a fork or whisk until mixed well, but not frothy. Pour
 egg mixture over ground beef. Bake 45 minutes or until knife
 is clean. Let stand 10 minutes. Garnish with lettuce, tomato
 and avocado mixture.
