This quick dinner was inspired by many other posts while looking for easy, gluten-free meal idea for a large crowd. It got such rave reviews i had to post for future meal. I failed to take a picture though.

I added black beans doubled the recipe and made a mess in a 9x13 lol. I would recommend for not doubling 8oz velveeta and 4oz cream cheese. The measurement seemed a little off but I used my knowledge to adapt then and it was amazing. Well definitely make again and again Read More

A few additions of my own like green pepper and onion were great. For cheese I used 100g of Philadelphia Creamy Cheddar and it was tasty. The taco seasoning was a little salty for my taste so I added the sour cream right into the mix and that cut the salt. Topped with green onions just because I had some. A nice one dish meal but not a healthy one therefore the 4 star. Read More

I doubled the recipe using a 15x10 casserole dish and it worked great. Skipped the cream cheese and used a little more Cheeze Whiz and cut back a bit on the olives. Served to a group and they all loved it and it went quickly. Will definitely make again. Read More

"Mmmm..... it's a keeper." That was the wife's assessment after the first taste. I divided ALL ingredients in half and put in a pie pan rather than a larger pan. I also used sweet peppers on half since the wife doesn't care for jalapenos. I also included some chopped onion to the top of the mixture. The finished product was just enough for two of us and a leftover lunch for me. This recipe will be making a regular appearance at our house. Read More

Since I only had canned Mexican corn that was what I used along with a can of black beans and some diced onions that I had in the refrigerator. My husband loved it. Delicious and very easy! Read More

This was different and very good. Mine probably needed to be cooked another 5 minutes (so 30 instead of 25) but that was the only change I would make. Read More

I didn't add the olives or jalapenos... but everyone loved it. We used the little that was left over on chips like a dip. Read More
