Gone in minutes! Family loved this. I didn't put tortillas on bottom in fear of becoming soggy.Added jalapenos on just 1/2 the side over salsa for my son who loves heat. Served with bowls of shredded lettuce, chopped tomatos, sour cream, guacamole, and the SCOOP tortilla chips! No silverware even needed for this quick and easy dish. You can also spoon some on a flour tortilla and roll it up like a burrito. Thanks for the great recipe!

this was pretty basic. i added a poblano, onion and garlic to the meat. i also spread the beans on the bottom of the dish rather than trying to put it over the meat. I wish I would have made rice and put that as a layer in there. I topped it with shredded lettuce, black olives, sc and cilantro

While the meat cooked, I made a package of yellow rice and used that as a layer for a little more "substance". Being 8 months pregnant and craving something mexican, this hit the spot!

Tasty and simple to make. I put chopped fresh tomatoes and sour cream on top and served with torilla chips. Also served a salad and had a complete meal. The next day, we cut small pieces, approx. 1" x 3", heated them in the microwave, then placed them on large tortilla wraps, sprinkled a little cheddar cheese, tomatoes and sour cream, rolled them up and had instant burritos. They were even better this way!

Quick and easy dinner that takes few ingredients and little effort.

This is really great and easy. I layer it with flour tortillas by spreading the tortilla with the beans and then start the layering process ending with cheese on top. You can add corn or black olives for more variety.

great recipe. you can easily lighten this recipe, substituting ground turkey. layer with corn tortillas,adds more flavor and fiber. freezes well.

So good and easy too! Top with sour cream and black olives. AWESOME! I have to make a suggestion though. Don't use the prepackaged taco seasoning. You've gotta try the recipe for "taco seasoning I" from this sight. IT MAKES IT!!
