I can't remember where I got this recipe from but I altered it a bit with using turkey instead of beef, lower fat cheese, and no fat refried beans instead. It's so delicious and my family ate it up!

Quick, health(ier) and yummy to boot! I cut this in half for the 4 of us, but kept some amounts the same such as the rotel, olives and garlic. Should there really be 2 full cans of refried beans in the full 10-serving amount? One can of beans worked just fine in my casserole, so maybe that's the way it was planned. Anyway, we loved it and it hit the spot for us! MERP'd for my adopted chef in PAC Spring '10.
