We enjoyed this. It made only one 9x13 pan. I think splitting it into 2 casseroles that size would not have worked. We will definately have this again!
Pure comfort food. Yum. I made this for myself and dd, and a different but similar recipe for dh using meat.
Delicious! The combination of flavors is excellent. The only changes I made were to substitute Corn for the pinto beans and fire roasted diced tomatoes for the chopped tomatoes and to take out the shredded cheddar. I will definitely be making this again. Next time I might consider using two cans of tomatoes. Like another reviewer, I was only able to make one 9 x 13 dish.
