I love adding tex mex flavors to just about anything, like my Zesty Veggie Enchiladas, and this lasagna is taken over the top with all the flavors added to it. The corn and beans add such different textures, and my special secret ingredient adds a delicious earthy crunch you will go crazy for! I've been making this version for about a year now, and thought it was time to share it with you all. I use oven ready lasagna sheets which take a lot of prep time out, which is just added to the baking time, but as long as I don't have to do anything while it's in the oven, I'm happy:)
It was during these times that my Nani (Maternal Grandmother) would beam with pride as she cooked and baked her days away doing what she loved most. Feeding her family. This cake is something we all grew up eating. It never occurred to me to get a detailed recipe from my grandmother, and after she passed away I tried for years to get it right. It was during my time at Pastry School when I finally cracked it.
I have been looking for the perfect brownie recipe since I was born. Yes. It's true. And I have finally found it...It's really simple, and it's just the right combination of chewy and moist, but it doesn't fall apart when you try cutting perfect little squares, and it definitely doesn't leave a trail of crumbs when you try sneaking one.
