I loved this recipe. I recomend using the corn tortillas (my flour ones got a little soggy). I didn't have any fresh cilantro so I used about 1 tsp dried. I was didn't have enough tomatoes so I probably only used 1/2 c. chopped and about 14 oz. tomato sauce. I had some corn so I added a 14 oz. can of that too for a little more bulk. Great dinner! Thanks spatchcock!

IT was a great dish. I added a few things to it though. I added some cream cheese and left over roast. It was very good. Thank you.

Better than our local Mexican restaurant! That's Dh's verdict and mine as well. Just terrific made with whole wheat tortillas. I used Mexican style stewed tomatoes and it's juice rather than the tomato sauce. This is too good to serve 6 people. Four diners will gobble it up in no time.

Great Recipe! I used flour tortillas due to personal preference and fresh black beans. I had no problem serving six with this recipe. These will become a regular item at my house. They are Fantastic!

We loved this. I was going to add corn, but once I got the black bean mixture together, it just tasted too good to mess with. Very easy, cheap, yummy.

This is SO SO tasty!! Here is the deal it is great just as it is written but it is even better if you just let loose. Follow the recipe roughly but also cater it to your likes. When I make it I always make more of the filling. I also use more cheese and spices. We like things gooey with flavor!! But seriously there is no need to alter the recipe in a complicated way. Just cook and let go. Use your intuition and it will be so good!!

My husband loved it but I didn't care for it. The corn tortillas overwhelmed the flavor of everything else. Sorry, I really wanted to add a new recipe to my cookbook, too.

Just starting my trek towards vegetarianism and this was my first cooking effort. I used wheat tortilla as well as a 4 cheese mix & smoked cheddar. I didn't miss the meat. I think I should have made enough for 2 instead of 4. I also used Morning Star Griller Crumbles as a meat substitute to keep it vegetarian. This was pretty good.

We made this a few weeks ago, but I am just getting around to reviewing it. It was really amazing! I have been using a lot of legumes lately, just for the health benefits. My husband is really getting sick of beans, but when he had this, he had seconds and thirds! I did use a small can of tomatoes, and a can of tomato puree. I also used dried black beluga beans, mixed with some brown beans. I cooked them first with some spice like cayenne pepper and cumin. We also used full fat Mexican blend cheese.I usually don't like corn tortillas but they are perfect for this. All in all an amazing recipe. I cannot wait to try it with fresh tomatoes!

We liked this one very much. I only made a few changes...used 1 can med. can diced tomatos rather than the fresh...added 1 lb. ground chicken...did'nt have chili powder so I used some taco seasoning. For condiments I chopped some cilantro, green onion, avacado and put out some sour cream ,verde salsa and Texas Pete.....it was a great supper. Everyone voted yes on this one...Thanks
