"A simple, satisfying main dish that our family enjoys. You can use reduced-fat cheeses and sour cream, but don't use the fat-free choices. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, sliced black olives, more salsa, and warmed tortillas."

Unfortunately this wasn't a hit in my family. It tasted like it should have been a topping for nachos and not a meal. :(


Made for dinner tonight and loved it! Hubby ate it as well. :) I added a can of Bush's Grillin' Beans: Black Bean Fiesta and left out the onions and garlic (didn't have any). A tad bit bland but did have flavor. Will make again! Served with warmed flour tortillas. Leftovers tomorrow will be Nacho style! Makes a lot (serves more than 6)!


Very good but I added rice and taco sauce because of the other reviews that I had seen saying it wasn't casserole enough. Added 2 cups of slighty undercooked white rice and served it on warm tortillas it was a hit :)
