Crashing different culinary techniques has resulted in surprisingly delicious dishes over the years – take sushi pizza for example, or falafel burgers (they’re a thing, we promise). Discovering new and interesting fusions is always exciting, so we’re adding Mexican lasagna to the list. This recipe combines tortillas where there were noodles with poblano peppers, Mexican crema, cumin, coriander – oh, and there is still, and always will be, cheese. It’s a crowd-pleasing dish that surprises with its unique union of traditions. Mix it up. Melt it up. And relish this blended meal.
