    Default Manly Mexican Bites

    24 ounces chorizo or other hot sausage, removed from casings and crumbled
    2 cups finely chopped yellow onions
    1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
    1 tablespoon Essence, recipe follows
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    2 cups grated Monterey Jack
    2 cups grated cheddar
    4 large fresh jalapenos, stems and ends removed, cut into 20 slices about 1/4-inch thick each
    12 corn tortillas
    Chopped fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish
    Spicy Sour Cream Dip, recipe follows
    In a skillet, cook the sausage over medium-high heat, stirring, until browned and the fat is rendered, about 4 minutes. Add the onions, garlic, Essence, and chili powder, and cook, stirring, until the onions are soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.

    In a bowl, combine the cheeses.

    Place 4 tortillas on a work surface. Top each tortilla with about 1/4 cup of the sausage mixture.

    Top each with some cheese and a few jalapeno slices and top with another tortilla.

    Add another layer of sausage, cheese, and jalapeno finishing with 1 more tortilla. Each stack should be 3 tortillas and 2 layers of filling.

    Press firmly down on the top of each stack.

    Lightly oil the grill or griddle and cook the stacks for about 3 minutes per side, or until the tortillas are golden brown and the cheese is melted. Cut each into 4 pieces.

    Place on a serving platter and garnish with the cilantro. Serve hot with Spicy Sour Cream Dip, if desired.
