This was really good. My family loved it. Thanks for posting. :)

With some slight modifications this dish was awesome and everyone loved it. I marinated the cubed pork in fajita sauce overnight and cooked it in the slow cooker with the sauce on high for a couple of hours. In a large bowl I combined rinsed (important to rinse) black beans, corn, green chilies (I used fire roasted), tomatoes (drained- I also used fire roasted), brown rice (I cooked it first), and soup. I added the cumin and also a little chipotle chili flakes. I then transferred the pork to the mixture using a slotted spoon and thoroughly stirred before transferring half the mixture to a 9 by 9 deep casserole dish. I added a layer of shredded cheese, then topped with the other half of the mixture. After 30 minutes in the oven I topped with a generous layer of the Mexican cheese and sprinked with crushed chili lime tortilla chips and returned to the oven until the cheese was melted. I think cooking the rice first, draining the tomatoes, rinsing the beans and omitting the chicken broth was key to making this a wonderfully thick, and dense (but creamy) casserole.

I am writing this review without rating because I am going to give this recipe a second try to verify the issue was not something I did because it ended up smelling incredible, but the rice didn't cook and it was a watery mess.
