This was really tasty! I didn't get to the freezer with it this time, but will next time. The only problem I had was the consistency of the corn tortillas. They seemed to almost disappear in the liquid. But the flavor was yum! Next time I will either use flour tortillas or a double layer of the corn ones. But definately a keeper! Thanks!.....Gina :)

I made this for a OAMC session and froze it. I just took it out (2 months have passed) and heated it up last night. The flavors were good, but I did not care for the way the tortillas got mushy. Next time I might try flour instead of corn tortillas, or leave them out altogether. Overall, good recipe!

This was a really good meal. Easy to make, and a tasty blend of flavors. I used dried black beans that I had soaked and cooked, and medium cheddar cheese. Next time I think I'll uses pinto beans, as I prefer them to black beans. I also added a little salt, cumin and chili powder to up the flavor. My only issue was that this called for a 2 quart dish, which in my cupboard is an 8x8, not a 9x13. The dish was so full that the cooking time was nearly doubled in order to get the whole casserole heated through. Otherwise, great dish, and one I'll make again.
