So simple, so fast, SO delicious! I modified by adding two 28oz cans of diced tomatoes and no tomatoe sauce or paste and using chili powder and cumin as spice. The result - RAVE reviews!


I received a last minute call, and had to change the menu to suite the needs of our guests. I tried this recipe and was not disappointed. I didn't have pinto beans or frozen corn, but used black beans and canned corn instead (also added a bit of garlic powder). I served some over fritos others without, added shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream to cut the heat, then sprinkled some black olives on top for my son. This fast easy dish was a hit in my house, and we will make it again. thanks!

This was a "clean out the pantry, fridge and freezer" recipe for me. I had everything on hand! I used cumin and chili powder instead of cayenne (lots of chili powder, a good two tablespoons for half the recipe because it dumped out of the bottle), mexican style tomatoes and no tomato paste. We had it over tricolor rotini with a dollop of sour cream. I give this four stars because it was quick, easy and healthy. It wasn't out of this world amazing, but good enough to make a couple times a year. Thanks!
