What a easy and delicious side dish this is! I made it as written and served it along side Kittencalskitchen's Chicken Avocado Cheese Bake with a tossed salad. This recipe is so easy and quick to put together, you don't even need to look at it. A definite keeper! Thanks for posting!!

Very good and so easy. Makes canned beans taste like homemade. I've served this several times as a side with a Mexican meal.

Thanks for a delicious side dish!! I used some Salsa Verde that was just sitting there in the fridge, Monterey Jack and about 1/4 of a yellow onion. Didn't bother to broil it, 'cuz I'm really lazy. My DH was really impressed and couldn't believe it was basically a can of this and a can of that. Thank you, again, for a super easy and tasty side dish :)
