    Engrossed's Note:

    Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: Try this yummy cheesy zesty potato casserole! It has all of the southwest flavors I love. It's very comforting and satisfying too. It is super easy to throw together, and uses pantry staples most of us have on hand. I really enjoyed it with tuna, but I think it would be just as good Vegetarian or with cooked chicken, cooked ground beef or cooked sausage. I made this pretty mild, but it can easily be spiced up with fresh or canned jalapenos or added red pepper flakes or hot sauce. Feel free to use reduced-fat cheese.

    • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
    • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
    • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno pepper, chopped (to make it spicier, you can use fresh jalapenos or canned chopped jalapenos)
    • 3 cups colby-monterey jack cheese, shredded (2 for filling, 1 to top)
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 3/4 cup salsa, drained (I used Pace chunky mild salsa)
    • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon salt, to taste

      Serve with sour cream and hot sauce. This is really good served alongside a crisp salad.
