I was looking for a gluten free Mexican casserole, and was skeptical. This was wonderful! It's easy to make this one gluten free, just by using certain brands. I was surprised at how much flavor it had. It's a keeper! We added black olives on top to make it even better.

Yum! This is a great recipe and is incredibly easy to make. I used a full 4oz. can of green chiles and used black beans instead of kidney beans. I also used hot salsa, so it was definitely spicy (which us texans like!) I served it was spanish rice and corn. Next time I will probably half the recipe because there's only 2 of us and it definitely made a lot. But we will enjoy the leftovers the next couple of nights! Thanks for sharing!

Very easy and tasty! I used black beans and omitted the onion. Served with sour cream, salsa and guacamole. Yum!
