      I agree with the other reviewer-I like all of the ingredients but the sum was not greater than the parts.Not that it was actually bad and inedible,but I would rather fry some plantains,refry some beans and sprinkle the whole thing with cheese than layer it all in a casserole.I would eat this again but probably wouldn't cook it again.

      I love all of the ingredients used in this recipe, but didn't like the end result. I'll go back to baking my plantains.
