This is excellent! I think it would be best to use Yukon Gold so that they can be cut into smaller cubes than what's possible with Idaho. I also used the entire 2 c. of 2% Monterey Jack cheese. I put the second cup on top. I used low-sodium V8 juice because I couldn't find low-sodium tomato juice. I used red beans I had cooked from scratch; cooked until done but not mushy. The contrast between the beans, soft potatoes and slightly chewy flour tortillas was SO good! Thank you for a great recipe!

This was the perfect solution for my potluck dilemma -- I needed a vegetarian Mexican main dish that I could prep the nnight before. It turned out very delicious. I made a couple of modifications: I used rotel in place of the tomato, and I used a poblano pepper instead of cayenne. This is a keeper!

These were alright, although I think I used too many potatoes. This just wasn't spicy enough for my taste.
