Wonderful casserole! It is flavorful and delicious. I served with the suggested sour cream. Thanks for sharing!
Made this to take to yet another holiday potluck we were invited to & to make it a bit more festive, I served it with dollops of sour cream that were sprinkled with a combo of chopped green onions & finely diced red pepper! I declared it a big hit when I brought up the tail end of the food line & there was hardly any left! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
This was a very good casserole. I used 3 cups of cooked black beans, and a mild salsa (b/c of the kiddos). Thanks for sharing.
