I was so excited to have a Mexican Lasagna recipe using things I have already made. I make salsa verde on a regular basis and will make crockpot shredded pork. I combine them to make tacos, but with this Mexican Lasagna I have a whole other use for both. This Tex-Mex recipe is so delicious!
1- 2 pounds shredded pork (recipe below)
1 or 2 cans hominy, drained
Salsa Verde (recipe below)
2 limes or 4 tbsp lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 package large flour tortillas
1 pound CoJack cheese, shredded
Place oven rack in middle of oven and turn on the broiler or place oven on 400 degrees F.
Cook pork in crockpot. (directions below)
Pit and scoop the avocado flesh into the processor, add the lime zest and juice. Add the honey, puree until smooth and season with a little salt. Stir the avocado mixture into the salsa verde.
In a baking dish layer sauce, tortilla, meat and hominy, cheese, tortilla, sauce, meat and hominy, cheese, etc. End with a layer of tortilla, sauce and finally cheese. Place baking dish in the oven and bake for 4 to 5 minutes until bubbly and cheese is brown.
Serve hot with sour cream.
