Thi recipie was great! Yummy and super simple to make--I can see this being a dish you could easily customize! I ate this like a main entree with bread and I also dished it up with tortillia chips for a snack--both way were great!


very good and easy.  made it after a long day of classes for me and the boyfriend. stress free and I made enough to fill us both up.  I used a can of kidney beans and pinto beans.  And one jar of salsa seemed a lot, so I used about a 1/4 of that.  Worked out great. Thanks.
