Made this tonight for dinner. AWESOME. Had to cook the chilis longer (50 min) and the poster (as shown above by I.M.) didn't type the recipe out correctly, but I figured it out. I used a mix of cheddar, Jack and Oaxaca (wha hock uh) cheeses and black soy beans (no carbs) ..EXCELLENT and I WILL make again and again.

Nice blend of flavors. We used black refried beans, Mexican style stewed tomatoes and regular corn. They turned out great. Thanks.
