      This was an awesome recipe! It tasted like tacos in a dish. I used pinto beans instead of black beans since that's what I had on hand, I added a Tablespoon of diced green chilies and I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta. The only complaint I had (and it's not even really a complaint) is that the juice from the diced tomatoes made it fairly watery so I think I'll drain them next time. But there's no way that this took away from the taste! I will make this again and again! Thanks for posting.

      This is perfect comfort food!! Easy to prepare and love the black beans in this! Used some low-fat cottage cheese and low-fat mozzarella cheese. Can't believe it's WW! :) Thanks!

      It was okay. My DH complained about the onions. I think if the onions had been sauteed first, they wouldn't be so overpowering in the dish.
