My mother gave me this recipe several years ago, and we have prepared it often ever since. It can be a meal in itself...or serve it along with a Mexican meal. I often take it to potlucks and watch it disappear in no time!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 31, 2013

I made it just as it was written and we really liked it and it was so quick and easy and a good meatless meal with a good amount of fiber!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 26, 2013

I served this for a family soup and salad get together. Fritos that were on top did soften a bit, but adding additional Fritos when served as a leftover just adds an additional layer of crunch! Not boring and not too spicy for the kids.
