    Easy and delicious. Set aside servings with no beans for kids. Then added beans. Didn’t need to cook in the oven.

    I added corn, green chilies & black beans. It was great. The combinations are many to make this dish different.

    It was good... a two day meal with seconds wanted... I will make again, it’s like a taco base for me because I added it to a taco bowl and made it like a taco. Delicious. I made it again and FYI please don’t forget the taco seasoning

    This turned out fabulous. I used 1 can of stewed tomatoes since that’s all I had, I cut them up and add them to the meat mixture. Then 1 can of Bush’s black bean fiesta and I used the Vigo Mexican rice with corn. The flavor was amazing and my youngest picky daughter loved it. Most of the family ate it with a side of Doritos and some put the slice of casserole in a soft tortilla. Definitely a recipe book keeper.Note one side of my casserole has light cheese for my other picky eater 😏😯😊

    Used tomatoes with chilies (mild) and was still a bit bland with not much flavor.
