      This was fabulous but i made a few changes: Only used 1 can black beans Added 1 can stewed Tomatoes Increased Cumin to 1 tablespoon Omitted salt/pepper/cayenne and added 1 heaping teaspoon of beef Better Than Bullion. Omitted corn tortillas and added 2 packages of green chile and cilantro polenta from Whole Foods. Added a package of shredded Mexican 4 cheese I cooked the filling on top the stove as directed. In a mixer, I opened the 2 packages of polenta, crumbled them up, added 2 eggs and beat until fluffy. I put the filling in a casserole dish and spooned the polenta on top and baked 35 minutes. Then topped with the package of cheese and returned to the oven for 5 minutes. I served sour cream and homemade salsa on the side. I bet black olives in the filling would be good. Thank you for the recipe. I had never worked with polenta and had 2 packages that I wasn't sure what to do with. Now I have a great recipe.
