"Many of the flavors and spices in Italian and Mexican cuisines can be used interchangeably. Oregano, garlic, basil, chili peppers, tomatoes, onions, even fennel. In this case, Italian sausage and marinara sauce bring this meat to another level. Use in tacos, burritos, enchiladas, or salads. I like to use variety specific chili powders as generic chili powder has other spices in it, but feel free to use what you have. It is important to take the time to cook the onions low and slow until they turn very soft and sweet."
