Hearty Mexican Casserole

I made this wonderful Mexican casserole last night.  Hubby, daughter, and I loved it.  You can find the recipe here:


I chose not to make the cornbread topping, but simply sprinkled shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese on top of the casserole after it was cooked.  I didn’t broil the cheese, either.

Tip: To prevent flatulence, always rinse the black beans in a colander first.

You will love the aroma and flavor of this entrée.

    It does look good, Gigi. I am a fan of those cheeses myself.

    This looks really good….my family loves all kinds of Mexican food so I will have to try this casserole sometime when we get together.

    Black beans and corn, I love the mix. If you use lo-fat cheese you can even do one for WW.

    Best to drink lots of ginger ale with this dish. It looks so good.

    Looks delicious! Just the fact you are cooking shows you are recovering and getting back to normal. That’s wonderful Gigi!

    I’ll be over for a taste test!
    I’m assuming the doc (you know, the good-looking guy that was a football player,) said it was ok to drive anytime, right?

      Actually, he didn’t say anything about it, and I didn’t ask. The pre-op nurse told me recovery would be in 4-6 weeks, whereas the surgeon’s medical assistant told me it would be in 2 weeks. The pre-op nurse told me that I might find it difficult to press on the gas pedal because of my surgery. What I discovered is that the seat belt hurts my navel when I strap it on. That is the chief problem as far as I am concerned.

    I always save her recipes, looks great Gigi.

    Just a thought Gigi:
    Place the horizontal part of the seatbelt across/below/under your abdomen, tucked above your thighs. Still keeps you protected without hurting the surgery.
    I can still hear my Dad telling women this, back in the days when seat belts were “optional.”
    Yep, still wear your seat belt.
