My husband his mexican...and making mexican food was for dinner at least twice a week! This will help, thanks for sharing. It's going to be super hard to not slap that on a tortilla!!

I plan to make mexican rice soon and change up the ingredients to make it more healthy....i just hope the family approves!

Thats funny, I was thinking about making something like that for dinner. But instead of the beans I was going to put a "crust" down made from shredded zuccini with egg and cheese. I bake that part first then put the rest on and bake until bubbly. I'll add black beans in with the meat.
