Fiesta Chicken Torte

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Cadillacgirl

From Company's Coming - made it for dinner tonight and I loved it, especially since it didn't have any canned soup in it like many similar ones. The only change I made from the original is that I prefer black beans to kidney beans and I added more cumin and chili powder than this states as I like it spicier.

Made for Zaar World Tour 8. Absolutely delicious! Wow. So easy to make as well. Also, the bean mix was a bit much for the sized dish I managed to find, but it turned out to be amazing just as a dip, so definately worth while keeping this recipe as a two for one! My housemates totally loved this and I made a lot of embarrasing noises while eating. Thanks for sharing!
