I've made this LOTS of times. It is one of my favorites. I make it exactly the way the recipe reads and love it! I never have sauteed the onion and garlic and mine comes out just fine. I promise you if it was the least bit raw my husband wouldn't eat raw onion!! I do, however chop it very fine with a Pampered Chef food chopper, so that might be why. I do understand what one person said about the tortillas being a bit soggy...they are...but, not enough to bother us. Perhaps if you toasted them under the broiler for a minute or two it would help?? This is a great recipe...give it a try.

Easy and economical to make. It was a bit bland for our tastes, even after adding oregeno and cumin. I will make again, but play around with an enchilada type sauce to add.

My husband and I both thought this was wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly, and it turned out great! Thanks Sherrie!

Overall I thought it was pretty tasty. We changed the recipe a bit - dropped the tortillas to lower the calories/fat and used salsa to replace the canned diced tomatoes to spice it up a little. I really think it needs the kick of the salsa for flavor.

This was wonderful. It was so easy to make and clean up too and everyone in my family loved it. The only thing I did differently was add a bit of sour cream to each piece. Next time we'll try the bean mixture in burritos! Thanks Sherrie!

Excellent!!!!! Deserves 4.5 stars really. I changed a couple of things: I used 2 fresh chillies as I couldn't find any canned ones, and I omitted the pastry crust completely. We found that the flour tortillas alone were plenty. The cheese on top went lovely and crispy and turned the top tortilla into a giant nacho! The only reason it isn't five stars is because the other tortillas went a bit soggy for my liking. Thank you Sherrie!

This recipe was great, although the measurements seemed a bit off to me. I only used 4 tortillas with all of the bean filling. I think adding corn to this would make it fantastic. Shredded chicken might be good too.

We loved this!!! My pie plate wasn't very deep so I could only fit about 3 layers of the bean mix, and I used 2 tortillas per layer for full coverage (so I only used 6 torts)But the only other thing we did different was to add sour cream on top. I would definately rate this in my top 10 recipes of all times!!! Thanks!
