Excellent combination of flavors in this dish. I didn't have 2 cans of black beans so I used 1 can of red kidney beans and we loved it. I also probably used more cheese than stated as I didn't measure. I lightly browned my tortiallas prior to adding the bean mixture to it. They were still a little on the soggy side. Next time I will drain off the liquid and see if that help. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2011
