    I truly admire people that can create recipes like this one. I went in a few weeks ago and thought I could maybe find a few recipes to help me on my low fat journey. Through these lower fat and low fat recipes such as this one, I have lost 17 pounds in about 6 weeks. My hat is off to you Kitten, and I commend you for helping to make my journey, and I'm certain many other's, a shorter journey. This is a fantastic, flavorful recipe that will remain in my often made book. Thanks for this recipe!

    ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!! TRUE! SO healthy for me too! Doubled spices like last review did suggest, Added jalepenos is what I like best! Added one small can of corn is does not digest great! Also added small can drained of capsicum...and used vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream as it all adds up, especially around the holiday season! THANKS!

    I couldn't decide between red kidney beans or black beans, so I used both. It was hearty and "meaty" even without the meat! None of the boys complained about having no meat. The mixture seemed dry, so I added an 8 oz can of tomato sauce. I also doubled the cumin and oregano. Thanx for posting this easy meal! We'll be having this again.

    Excellent! I love recipes that are not only great tasting, but that I can get on the table in less than half an hour. We love Mexican inspired dishes in our house, so I knew this would be a hit!

    This was great, i scaled it way down to a pot pie size and had it for an early lunch. Used kidney beans i had soaked for another dish and didnt use them all rather than canned and frozen corn kernels. Thanks so much!
