"Very good recipe. My son used to be a chef and I asked him what he thought and he really liked it. The taste might be different depending on the salsa and canned items you use. Also used flour tortillas . I would recommend having sour cream as a topping. Definitely a keeper"

"I make this without the peppers and use Whole grain and white corn tortillas from The Tortilla Factory. It's a fantastic thing to make at home or for a party."

"Made this at home, husband loved it. Took it to a potluck, everyone raved. Use low-sodium black beans if you can. Also I use a whole wheat and corn blend tortilla to make it healthier yet. Two percent reduced fat cheddar won't change the taste either. I add more cheese than the recipe calls for to make it decadent. Top it with light sour cream and you have perfection."
