This is great, easy, inexpensive and yum! Made it just as written but cutting back on the sour cream and topping with a little hot sauce. Will make again and again. Thanks Merlot.....

I make a TON of recipes that involve beans, cheese, sour cream and salsa. It has begun to get a little boring...until I found this recipe! Somehow, this tastes unique from the other things I have tried with similar ingredients. Definitely worth 5 stars, I will be making this often! Thank you!

Oh wow this was so good! I am sort of a health nut, so I cut out most of the cheese, used brown rice and low fat sour cream. Instead of baking it, (I was impatient from cooking that rice for so long!), I wrapped it up in a whole wheat tortilla and made a burrito! The flavors all mix together really well and it was really easy to make. I will definately make this again!

We made this to put in flour tortillas and it was really good and easy to make. I left out the sour cream. I used Valentina Mexican picante sauce and it was a little too spicy, so next time I'll use 4oz. I'm not a vegetarian, and I might add some ground beef or chicken next time for a little added something.

Yum! We served this for dinner with tortilla chips for dipping, and everyone loved it. It works fine with fat-free sour cream, which is what we used. We have also used a spanish rice mix for the rice, which is also quite tasty with it. You do have to plan ahead to have the cooked rice and time to bake for about an hour, but it is reqlly quite simple to prepare. This one is definitely a keeper for us!

Great combination of flavors. I mixed half the cheese in the casserole and sprinkled the rest on top the last 15 minutes. I used cheddar cheese. Leftovers were wrapped in tortillas and made tasty burritos! I had this in my cookbook for months before I tried it. I wish I hadn't waited so long.

Another winner from you, Merlot! I wanted a dish for the vegetarian family members that the non-vegetarians would also love. BIG HIT with everyone! This was perfect. It was a big bonus that it was so easy to prepare. Thanks so much for posting.

This was absolutely wonderful. As we had a busy day planned I prepared in the slow-cooker on med-high about 3 1/2 hours. I added the black olives and cheese for topping (I used Mexican blend) the last hour. Thanks so much for posting!
