    A high-protein, delicious one-meal dish. Made ahead of time, this casserole freezes well and is a good dish on-the-run. Omit ground meat for a vegetarian meal.

      Healthy, filling. great ability to flavor to taste. Full of ingredients to combat altitude sickness. Can adjust to preferences. This is my 3rd time to make it!

      Very good and very satisfying. The family wasn't crazy about it (being the mac and cheese types) but still came back for seconds. A little bland - I added black pepper to the pot and put hot sauce in my own portion - but it's the sort of dish that everyone can personalize with their own blend of seasonings. I like the nutritional content and will definitely make this again.

      This is a really good recipe. I cut each of the beans in 1/2 just out of preference but otherwise followed the recipe. DH enjoyed it as well.
