I don't use chorizo very often. I try to keep myself to the leaner meats. But this time I indulged. And I'm so glad that I did.
I've become completely addicted to corn tortillas. After eating whole wheat tortillas for years, it turns out, I actually like them more. I've been eating them with everything.
Spicy Mexican Torte
1 lb. chorizo sausage
1 large onion, chopped
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 4 oz. can green chile, chopped
9 corn tortillas
8 oz. pepperjack cheese, shredded
1 can refried beans
1 jar roasted red peppers
In a large pan cook chorizo, onion and garlic until sausage is done. Drain grease and stir in chilies and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, lightly spray 8 x 8 in. pan with cooking spray. Place 3 tortillas on the bottom, I cut one in half to cover completely. Spread 1/3 of sausage mixture, sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese. Place red peppers on top of cheese. Place 3 tortillas on top of cheese. Spread with 1/2 cans of beans. Top with 1/3 chorizo mixture. Sprinkle 1/3 of cheese. Top with 3 more corn tortillas. Top with the rest of the beans, the rest of the sausage and then remaining cheese.
Cover and bake in oven for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes more until cheese is melted and center is hot.
