The new kraft cheese with a touch of philly is my new favorite cheese!! I did use refried beans instead of whole pinto beans and used large burrito style tortillas so I just layered one tortilla at a time. This was simple and good.

This was pretty good- seriously man or kid food, but yummy. I added black olives on the top and queso in the layers. Also, I used black beans instead of pinto based on personal preference. My hubby ate two servings. It looked nice, the layers kept and it set well enough that I was able to cut distinct pieces without making a mess. This will probably be a rare dinner though because it is very fatty and salty. Thanks for the recipe.

I just made this for dinner but I made the tortillas crspy first by individually frying in the pan and then layer them into the dish. Made a huge difference in taste. The original way just made the tortillas soggy so this keeps them crisp and fluffy. Adds that restaurant style to your homecooked meal. try it!!!!
