Amy's Southwest Casserole

Hmmm, not sure I like the name but that's ok. I'm going to do my best to write down my chicken black bean dish but since I just throw in a little of this and a little of that it's difficult to pin down. But here goes:

What you'll need:
1 16 oz pckg. of dry black beans cooked according to package directions or 4 cans of black beans rinsed and drained (if you don't drain them the dish will be to soupy)
3 boneless skinless chicken breast-cooked
1 package taco seasoning
mojo (you can find it in a bottle in the Mexican food section) just use a splash- to taste
1 package frozen corn (I like white best but you can use any variety)
1 small jar salsa-thick and chunky- whatever heat you like
1 8 oz pckg. Mexican cheese

Combine all ingredients in a large skillet and cook until bubbly. I like to serve with Hint Of Lime Tostitos but you could serve over rice or anything else really. You can also make a casserole by layering flour tortillas, bean mixture, cheese...repeat, in a springform pan with the last layer being a tortilla with cheese on top. Cook at 4oo degrees until the cheese is bubbly- about 20-25 min. slice and serve with sour cream and Franks hot sauce, mmmm.

Yeah, we finally have it in writing. I love this dish and I really want to try the casserole version. Maybe next week.

Hmmmmm since I cant make a turkey (the only thing I cant cook) maybe the kids and I will do a southwest theme for Thanksgiving this year?

Amy said...

Tracy, you're so funny! I find it hard to believe you can't cook a turkey though!

Yes, finally in writing. I hope I didn't forget anything.

Kris said...

Mmmmm.... I can taste it now...

So, dinner at the Kelso's? We're there.

Tried it already but didn't taste as good as when Amy made it. I guess she'll just have to come down to Florida and make it here (and bring her entourage!)

Amy said...

I do have an entourage now, don't I?
