During these hot days, the kids enjoy chilly snow cones.

A really easy and delicious mexican dish!
Spicy Mexican Torte
1 pound chorizo sausage, casings removed and crumbled (I used a mixture of ground beef and sausage.)
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile peppers, drained
8 (10 inch) flour tortillas (some of the layers I used one tortilla instead of two)
2 cups shredded Pepper Jack cheese, divided
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans, divided
1 (7 ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained (I used mild taco sauce instead; it blended everything well and made the dish moist.)
1. In a large skillet or frying pan, cook chorizo
2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 10 inch pie plate.
3. Place 2 tortillas in pie plate. Spread half of the sausage mixture over tortillas. Sprinkle with half of the cheese. Place 2 tortillas on top of cheese. Spread with beans. Place 2 tortillas on beans and place peppers on tortillas. Place 2 tortillas on top of peppers. Spread with remaining sausage mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
4. Cover and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes more, or until cheese is melted and center is hot. Cool 10 minutes before cutting. (serve w/corn chips, sour cream, and a cool salad)

That looks so good and refreshing! I would like it with some grape juice. I have a recipe I made the other day for the first time and forgot to take a picture of it. But it was sooooo easy and absolutely delicious and I am going to buy the ingredients for it tomorrow and will make it again/w a picture.
