Simply Filling and Core Recipes - Need Core suggestions for a Mexican potluck

I could probably find something in the recipe forum, but don't know if it's "tried and true"!

Next Thursday the monthly potluck has a Mexican theme. I took a chicken casserole to the last one (chicken, rotel, corn tortillas, cheese) so I don't want to do that again. Any ideas?

Ooh, ooh, I made the Mexican Rice for a mexican potluck at dh's workplace. It was eaten all gone, and people commented on how yummy it was. I made it with white rice, but I'm sure brown rice would be just as good - just make sure you cook it the correct length of time. It's nice, because it's a side dish, and not too many people bring those (at least at dh's work.)

The Polenta Mexican Casserole was good too. I made it for dinner tonight (the one Sandra posted) and it was good, especially with sour cream on top. Green onions would also be a good garnish.

Or, you could go really easy and bring a can of ff refried beans, plop it on a plate, and call it good. :lol:

Let us know what you decide.

Kathy, I make this all the time. I "created" this myself and posted it on Barbos Diet Kitchen. I think it needs to be hotter though, so I'd add a few chilis. You could garnish with FF sour cream. It makes a big panful!

That looks good! I need a large quantity and this looks like it would be enough.

I bookmarked it and also the polenta casserole. I'll let you know what I do -- maybe a combination of both!
