SUPER YUMMY! My husband is allergic to beans, legumes, & soy so at 1st glance this recipe would either not work for us as a family or would be kinda boring if we just omitted the beans. B/c of his allergy, we eat some sort of meat w/almost every evening meal. Needless to say, it gets pricey. I wanted to start adding beans into my son's diet more & try to save a little $ so I started out w/this recipe. I 1/2-ed all the 'filling' ingredients (subbed salsa for taco sauce; couldn't find organic taco sauce anywhere!), left out the beans & cooked that in one pot. In another pot, I made homemade refried pintos (beans, salt, water) (SO much cheaper & IMHO SO much yummier!) & added the other 1/2 of the 'filling' ingredients to it (saute onion 1st) (& using only 1/4 of the jar of salsa b/c my son & I don't really care for super spicy things) & left out the peppers & olives too. As I was getting the beans ready, I felt bad for my husband - they were so yummy & creamy & his filling was so... ground beef-looking. LOL So, I added about a cup of sour cream, thinking it would thicken it up. WRONG! It was SO watery! So I removed some of the watery-ness & mixed it w/corn starch, stirred it back in, cooked it up again, & voila - creamy. I used two square glass baking dishes w/the meat filling in one & the bean filling in the other. I used 6 tortillas total (2 layers for each dish) & just tore them into pieces to cover the filling/cheese. If you are vegetarian or allergic to beans HTH!!
