This is a great recipe to start with. I did make a couple of changes though: I used about 1.25lb gound turkey and 1.3lb of mexican chorizo sausage (I didn't want all that fat in there). I also added more cumin, some paprika and chili podwer. Instead of ricotta, I used cottage cheese (since that's what I do with my regular Italian lasagna). In addition to the cobly jack I used, I added pepper jack to the ricottta/egg mixture. And for an additional crunch I added a can of corn to the sauce. This had kick and turned out AWESOME. I can't wait to make it again (since after eating 2 pieces, I dropped the entire lasagna pan). Thank!
Great fresh flavor with just enough heat. I did cut the recipe in half but next time I will prepare the whole thing. It is soooo good! Thanks for posting Wiley
Excellent recipe. I have made it this way and with soyrizo. Amazingly, I can't tell the difference, although I know it is healthier.
Similar to enchilidas in preparation but it has an added bite from the chilies and noodles. True southwestern flavor.
you just need one box of the noodles... aka not the 16oz
Everyone really liked this and I got lots of compliments on it. I had an Anaheim pepper that needed to be used up so I subbed that for the jalapeno. I left out the onion and used extra cilantro. I made sure to drain the chorizo really well so I could cut back a few extra calories. I also threw in some chopped red peppers into the meat mixture. Very yummy, will definitely make again!
