    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.

    Tasty but needs something else, like some heat. I even used Jalapeno & Onion taco mix, but I think next time I may add some chopped jalapeno. Next time I may try it vegetarian and stuff the tomatoes and green chilies inside. I also may add some cilantro and queso fresco.

    I used chorizo pork sausage, and did not use corn. It was very delicious. My husband loved it and asked for more. Do not leave it in the oven to rest after it is cooked, it will burn. :)
