My husband and I really enjoy this recipe. We choose to leave the chicken out of it and just enjoy the rest of the casserole. The cheese on top makes for an absolutely delicious crispy crust. I use pepper jack cheese. I could not find the Carribean black beans so just added some brown sugar, lime juice and liquid smoke when I didn't "chicken" it but when I did I seasoned the chicken with smoked paprika. A delightful dish and on the list to make often, it's so colorful and healthy and wonderful! Thanks so much. Laurel
This recipe is so good, it is worth it to me to cook two pans, so that I can cut the "heat" for mineI. I increased the amount of chicken to 3 breasts for 5 servings.It is absolutely delicious. My husband loves spicy, hot. For his,I used Hot Taco seasoning & shredded Mexican mix of cheese. I take i/3 of the chicken & cook it separately, so that I can use 1 can of tomatoes without the jalopenos, & lo-sodium Taco seasoning. I doubled the corn & split the black beans between the two pans of chicken. I use an 8 X 8 square baaking dish for his portion & a smaller baking dish for mine. This dish keeps it's flavor even when leftover is reheated in the oven.
We have had simular but nothing as good as this. Thank you for creating this for us. The only thing I omited was the olives. Quite easy to make!
Can you say "Ole"? Easy and delicious.
