    Suza2n's Note:

    When living in New Mexico, I learned the difference in New Mexican food from Mexican food. Here is my version of the great food that region of the country serves. The green chilies are a must and do not make the dish too spicy for those who cannot tolerate spicy foods. Notes You can also use corn or wheat tortillas if you prefer. You can alter the amounts of ingredients to taste, but I found this works best. Offer additional toppings such as shredded lettuce, salsa, and sour cream to complete this great dish! Let me know how you like it!

      I thought this came out pretty good, and my husband raved about it! He cleaned out the whole pan in one sitting. I didn't add the black beans this time because I didn't have any, so I will try it again. Thanks for posting!
