This veggie-packed casserole hits the spot on chilly nights. But it's great any time I have a taste for Mexican food with all the fixings, too. —Patricia Gale, Monticello, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 12, 2016

"This was fantastic! I'm vegetarian and my husband is an omnivore and even he said, "Yeah, please make this again!" I added a tbsp of chili powder and a lot more cheese than the recipe called for. I also used pinto beans (I *thought* I had a can of black beans but it proved elusive...), which worked out fine. This is a terrific dinner and will be added to our regular roster---thanks!!"
