SO HOW'D IT GO?

:) This one is a keeper! I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand, so I made the following substitutions and it still came out great: half package of dry onion soup instead of bouillon, creamy style corn instead of regular, and vegan crumbles (Morningstar Farms). Also, I added a tablespoon or more of cumin and increased the paprika and chili powder to give it some more kick. I wanted to use up some cooked brown rice, so I used that and did not add the water--but I did put in all the juices of the tomatoes, corn, and beans, so it was still moist. I baked it for about 35-40 minutes.

The black olives may not be "real tex mex" butI love them in mexican food!...i think it adds to the flavor.

I enjoyed the simplicity of it, however, it may be easier if one has the garlic, chilli's allready chopped and ready to go.  I substituted brown rice, which didn't detract any flavor.  Make sure you use a large skillet ( perhaps a cast iron[giving you more nutrients)Dutch Oven
