Give the classic lasagna a Latin kick with crumbled spicy chorizo and a hint of green peppers. The ideal meal to make-ahead or for a large family feast.


Make It

Step 1

Cook beef, stirring occasionally, in a large skillet over medium heat until no longer pink; add chorizo, bouillon, 1 teaspoon black pepper, oregano and coffee granules. Stir to mix well. Add bell pepper, onion, garlic and crushed red pepper. Cook until vegetables are tender. Add diced tomatoes with juice; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Step 4

Combine ricotta cheese, egg, Cotija cheese and remaining 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Set aside.

Add ½ of the meat mixture, a third layer of 3 lasagna noodles, 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese and remaining meat mixture. Top with final layer of 3 noodles, remaining tomato sauce and remaining 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese. Sprinkle with basil.
