Tex-Mex Lasagna. New Music From Summer Heart.

Tex-Mex Lasagna


Put this Tex-Mex Lasagna on your to do list. It would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo as it feeds a crowd and can be assembled ahead of time before baking.

Fans of Tex-Mex food will love this spicy, cheesy, veggie packed, chicken studded lasagna. There are beans in there, too. Yum.

I usually diss songs that have U for “you” or 4 for “four” in their title like Summer Heart’s new song ‘U Got What I’m Looking 4’. (I’m that square texter who never uses those kind of abbreviations.)

I really liked this tune’s warm weather feel and the downright cheerfulness of it all. So diss turned to yass.

Check out Summer Heart on Facebook and Bandcamp where you can buy their previous releases. New songs will be available for download on April 27th.
