I LOVE this recipe! Fast to make with ingredients that I almost always have in the house and delicious. I added some fresh jalapeÃ±os to the bean mixture and went heavy on the seasoning because dh and I like spicy food. I also added some thawed frozen corn to make it a little more hearty and I wouldn't change a thing for next time. . . and there will be a next time.
Thanks for a delicious and healthy recipe! I used two cloves of garlic, a teaspoon of chili powder, and whole wheat instead of corn tortillas. (Note that you'll only need about 6, as they're larger: two for each layer - one whole plus one ripped into quarters to fill the corners.) I also substituted salsa for the tomato sauce, and used about a cup and a half of low-fat cheddar. I served it with guacamole on the side. Yum!
Awesome! My boys even asked for seconds, instead of their usual pattern of leaving the table and then asking for snacks 20 minutes later. I used Mission Carb-balance tortillas b/c I have a diabetic son, and they fit perfectly in my 8 x 8 baking dish. With these tortillas I used only 2 per layer, and 1 on top. I kept the filling within the tortilla circles and so served pie-shaped servings. One boy asked if it was a quiche based on the presentation! I used a drained can of diced tomatoes in lieu of fresh tomatoes, and used 1 cup of chopped green onions (including white parts) instead of 1/2 cup green and 1/2 cup regular onions. I did this b/c I hate buying a bunch of green onions and having 1/2 go bad, while the white onions in my fridge last for weeks. I picked this recipe in part b/c I wanted to use up cilantro I had used in 1 recipe the preceding week that was not going to last much longer. In any case, this recipe was a huge hit and my husband implored me to serve it once a month. (I'm always trying new recipes and he hates one-hit wonders that he never sees again.)
Good casserole. I used a 15 oz can of tomato sauce, doubled the garlic, and added just a bit of cayenne pepper and 1/4 tsp sugar (to cut the acidity of the tomatoes) all of which I would do again. Black olives would be good in this. Beef would also be good, but DH didn't even notice the lack of meat which is unusual for him with a meatless dish. Thanks for sharing.
Fabulous recipe - Being in Australia I found dried 'Black Turkey Beans' in my health food shop. To use these black beans in this recipe I followed ketchupqueen's advice "You can soak beans overnight in cool water, or bring to a boil, boil for 20 minutes, turn off heat but leave the cover on, and soak for at least 2-4 hours. If you have hard water, you should add a tsp. of baking soda". Other than that I followed the recipe exactally except to subsitute the fresh tomatoes and sauce for a tin of tomatoes. Thanks you meow! for introducing us to black beans and for posting a recipe that I will use often.
Very good. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I added a little extra garlic and used only ten tortillas, since the package I bought only contained ten. I would definately suggest using corn tortillas for this recipe instead of substituting flour ones, because the corn tortillas give it an excellent enchilada flavor. Great recipe!
Quick, easy & delicious! I used 12 ounces of my home-made tomato sauce which is fairly spicy, whole wheat tortillas & a combo of cheddar & monterey jack cheeses - with salsa & sour cream on the side. Thanx Meow!
Very good. I used flour tortillas -- with 10" tortillas, I found 6 was enough. I mixed monterey jack cheese with the cheddar. Also added some chopped jalapeno to the tomato mixture. Quick and easy. I'm sure to use this again.
Great recipe! Very tasty and easy to put together. My DH thought it could use some meat so next time I will add 1/2 lb. of cubed chicken or ground beef. I only had flour tortillas...next time I will try corn. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
We really enjoyed this. My husband was skeptical as I called it a "casserole". It was really comfort food for me and I loved it. I added a small red pepper and used flour tortillas instead of corn (as I didn't read the recipe very well). Also--a question for meow--the directions mention cumin but it is not listed inthe ingredients?? I used 1 tsp cumin. We topped with sour cream. This might also be good with corn added. Loved it and will make again. Note to above reviewer--did you use the 9x9 pan that the recipe called for or a larger pan--this worked perfectly for me in a 9x9 pan. Thanks MEOW!
