bulk pork sausage
5 (6 inch)
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
shredded Cheddar cheese
canned chopped green chiles
heavy whipping cream
minced fresh cilantro
I had a half pound of chorizo sausage to use, I used that instead of plain pork sausage. I also did not have ricotta, I used "trim" cottage cheese instead. This was great--using corn tortillas as the crust is brilliant. It was a little greasy from the cheeses, though. I bet I could get away with using half the amount next time and it still would be just as good.
This is so simple and absolutely delicious! I was panicked b/c I didn't have heavy whipping cream but found an emergency substitute online (3/4 cup milk + 1/3 cup melted butter = 1 cup heavy cream) My family ate every last bite!
Enjoyed this... added spinach, used leftover homemade chorizo and leftover red bell peppers
I also used chorizo and reduced each cheese by 1/2. I wouldn't say it was delicious, but it was good.
Good recipe, well received. We really liked it with some sour cream and salsa on it.
Like another reviewer, I wanted to avoid a trip to the store so I used what I had on hand. Didn't have a can of green chilies so I subbed 1 T finely chopped canned jalapenos (threw that in with the sausage layer.) Also cut the amount of cheese to 1 cup "Fiesta Blend." Didn't have corn tortillas so I searched for a recipe for a tortilla chip crust. Wasn't great, but the filling more than made up for it! Delicious!! Can't wait to try this again with the corn tortilla crust. Thank you Corinne, I had to give my very first review because I thought this was so good.
Very tasty! Instead of the cilantro, chili powder and green chilis, I used 1/2 jar of sala and cut up small yellow, orange and red peppers. I also substituted parmesan cheese over the top, but did use the ricotta. I also only used 4 eggs. In short, I used what was in my fridge.
