This quick & easy meal from Canadian Living starts on the stove and finishes in the oven while you set the table. This makes a lot--appetite sizes will determine the number of servings, but its perfect for a weeknight!

- 2 garlic cloves, minces

I love one dish meals that are also easy to make. I used black beans that I cooked up from Prepared Black Turtle Beans, that you could freeze after you made them. They worked great in this recipe. This recipe will be made again. Thank you for posting. Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag Game 2010
We enjoyed this. I used kidney beans instead of black beans since that is what I had on hand. I had to use a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with basil and oregano, but don't think that affected the outcome. I divided the mixture into 2 dishes and froze one, leaving the tortillas and cheese off until baking time. I'll try to remember to update the review after using the frozen portion. Thanks for sharing!
This was a hit with my kids and my husband and bookmarked for a repeat. I like it, that you can prep it and let it finish in the oven and usually, I have the ingredients at home, so we will make it often, it is so easy, that even my kids can assemble it. Thanks
