    Southwestern Lasagne

    I came up with this recipe a while back basing it on my Mom's Italian Lasagne recipe. It must be ok because it never seems to last very long. [​IMG]

    Here ya' go...

    1 lb - ground beef
    1/2 lb - pork chorizo
    1 14.5 oz can - S&W Stewed tomatoes, Mexican recipe or eq.
    1 can - tomato paste
    1 can - tomato sauce
    1 can - sliced black olives
    1 can - whole green chiles
    10 oz - lasagne noodles
    1/2 tsp - cumin, ground or seed
    1/2 tsp - chili powder
    1 - small onion, diced
    4 - garlic cloves, diced or crushed
    4 cups - shredded jack & sharp cheddar cheese
    sour cream

    var. 1 - habenero

    Brown beef & chorizo, drain fat. Combine with tomatoes, sauce, paste, olives, onion, garlic, cumin & chili powder. Bring to simmer for about 30 min. while cooking noodles. Put one layer of noodles in a greased 13 x 9 baking dish & then layer meat mixture, green chiles, 1/2 of cheese. Repeat noodles, meat & remaining cheese. cook in 350° oven for about 35 min. Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired. I sometimes add a habenero to the mix to heat it up just a might. [​IMG]

    Hope you enjoy it.

    sounds great! I do something similar, but instead of lasagna noodles I use tortilla's.
