Great jumping off point but I made a few changes. Instead of garlic salt I used fresh minced garlic. While cooking I used salt and pepper to release some of the zucchini and onions natural juices. I also cut the oil down from 2 T. to 1 T. I didn't have pinto beans but garbanzo beans and I only put cheese on the top. We devoured the entire casserole and it was a great way to use up some of my garden's zucchini. Thank you for a tasty recipe!
This recipe was alright. I made a few changes...I left out the oregano and used black beans instead of pinto beans (that's what I had on hand). Also I added about 1 1/2 tablespoons of chipotle hot sauce to the salsa and it added some flavour and heat. Not sure if I'd make again.
This dish earned rave reviews from both my husband and myself! The only tweaks I made were to cut the cayenne pepper to 1/2 teaspoon and to not put the extra cheese on top of the casserole. Also we assembled the dish over the weekend refrigerated then heated in the oven during the week. I found I had to double the oven time to 40 minutes with the dish being so cold to start with -- so just keep that in mind if you use this approach too.
I made this after a friend sent me the recipe. I added 1 lb of ground turkey to make it meaty for my fiancee and a smidge of Velveeta that was leftover from another recipe. It was wonderful!!! We ate it over Fritos and used the leftovers for burritos the next day. Perfect Fall food! Yum! Yum! Yum!
Absolutely delicious! I made this for 3 adults tonight and all of us loved it. I'll definitely make it again. I used 3/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper and red beans instead of pinto beans but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Spicy and yummy!
Good recipe. Made exactly as recipe stated.....needed something else. Next night added some chicken to the leftovers and much better. If I make it again will add chicken again and a little more of the spices a little bland for my family. All in all a good recipe.
