    Made this for the family and my brother thought it tasted a lot like quesadillas.

    This dish is tasty and satisfying. I chose it on the fly, so modified a bit with what I had on hand. I made it vegetarian, because chicken is in the freezer. I used quinoa because I had leftovers and I used both refried and black beans to make up for the missing meat. I added some diced onion as well. My husband and I both loved it. Will definitely make it again. Thank you!

    This was the first recipe my boyfriend and I have made together- it was so easy to make and it turned out wonderful! We had plenty of leftovers, which reheated really well, and we were both full with each serving. Will be making again :)

    I’m not the kind of person who would use half a can of refried beans and return the rest to the fridge, so I had to alter the quantities of the ingredients a little. I used the whole can, which is about a cup and 3/4, and then used a cup and 1/2 of salsa instead of enchilada sauce, because I wanted the chunkiness. I also added a cup of frozen corn. Otherwise, I followed the directions. It was good. I especially like the way it firms up after it cools down a little. I just wish I had done something to increase the heat, as it was a little milder than I was hoping it would be. Maybe next time I will use a hotter salsa or add a can of chopped green chilies, like some people said.

    Pretty good. I added Mexican-Style Chili Powder for spice.

    This is AMAZING and so simple. I used refried black beans because it’s what I had and it was great! I added some diced onion on top in addition to the pepper. I think next time I’ll add a little bit of diced jalapeño on top as well.

    So delicious!!! I hate brown rice, but I totally dig it here! I also cooked it like they suggested, so I highly recommend you look at the link that is attached to the instructions and cook it that way. It came out perfect! I had it with half an avocado and about 2 tablespoons of low-fat sour cream! This is so delicious I’m definitely going to make it again!!
