Ingredients: (serves 4)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Break chorizo into small pieces and brown in a pan over medium heat. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Return the chorizo to the sauce.
  3. Spoon a little bit of the sauce onto the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Place 3 tortillas lengthwise in the pan to cover most of the bottom of the pan. Spoon half of the sauce over the top. Top with half of the pepper jack cheese. Place remaining three tortillas on top of the cheese. Then the remaining sauce and the remaining pepper jack cheese. Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes or until edges are bubbly. Remove from oven sprinkle with cotija cheese, green onions and cilantro.

  1. Ah! A perfect blend of Italian and TexMex … as a lover of both, this one is on the culinary agenda!

  2. Love me some TexMex and also regular lasagna – combining elements of Hispanic with Italian sounds like a winner to me!

  3. Full blooded Mexican here, with an Italian wife. My bet is this lasagna, using the very Mexican chorizo sausage, is gonna be perfect for both of us!
