If you like foods with Southwestern flair, this just might become a new favorite. Loaded with cheese, meat and beans, the layered casserole comes together in a snap. There are never any leftovers when I take this dish to potlucks. —Terri Keenan Tuscaloosa, Alabama

"Great quick recipe! I mixed the retried beans in with the meat and black beans to make it easier to assemble. I also added fresh corn which I cut off the cob. Great recipe for a weeknight!"

"Good recipe. To reduce the amount of fat, I used fat free refried beans and non-dairy "cheese". I also used corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas. Fat free tortillas can also be used to reduce the fat even further."

"My family is crazy for this. I add sliced or chopped black olives with the cheese on top."
