  • Mix chicken, red bell pepper, red onion, sour cream, cream cheese, taco seasoning, and salt together in a large bowl. Combine black beans, hot water, and cumin in a separate bowl; roughly mash with a fork until evenly mixed.

  • Layer 3 tortillas into the bottom of a 9x9-inch baking dish. Top tortillas with 1/2 the salsa, 1/2 the black bean mixture, and 1/2 the chicken mixture. Repeat layering with remaining ingredients, ending with chicken mixture. Sprinkle casserole with mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden, 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

I loved it however it was way too much onion for my taste. Next time I will just use a small amount of onion but follow the rest of the recipe exactly. The rest of the family did not like it as much as I did but said they would like it again. Read More

I could think of a hundred ways to modify this recipe but I liked it as is. The only modifications I made were using white corn tortillas (I am gluten free) and a Mexican style cheese blend. The jalapeno cream cheese is surprisingly spicy so if you want a milder flavor you might like to use plain cream cheese. Read More

I added about a half cup more chicken and an extra can of black beans to the recipe. I didn't have all of the ingredients on hand so had to substitute several items but it turned out delicious! The biggest critics (my children) loved it! I used a can of Rotel tomatoes and green chiles in place of the red bell pepper and diced onion. Also I substituted some crushed red pepper and cream cheese in place of the jalapeno-flavored cream cheese. Read More

Five stars based upon my tasters rating. She said it was great the first day and better the second day. I thought it was good the first day and too moist the second day with water in the bottom of the pan. I grilled the tortillas first to provide a little structure. The black bean mash barely covered one layer of an 8 x 8 dish. The canned chicken I used was 1.5 cups per can so I used 2 cans. This was easy to prepare and not particularly spicy. Now what do I do with 1/2 tub of jalapeño cream cheese? Read More
