  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a large (9 X 13-inch) casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add onions, both peppers, mushrooms and salt; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in chorizo, lime juice, garlic, cumin and oregano; cook 2 minutes to heat through.
  3. Spread 1 c salsa on bottom of prepared pan; spoon half of veggie-chorizo filling over salsa. Top with an over-lapping layer of 6 tortillas; spoon remaining veggie-chorizo filling over top. Top with another layer of 6 tortillas; spread remaining 1 ½ c salsa over top; sprinkle with cheese. Cover and bake, until heated through and cheese is melted, 15-20 minutes. Let cool slightly before slicing into 12 pieces. Serve topped with sour cream, scallions and cilantro (and optional hot sauce and lime wedges).
