This is a recipe I will modify and make again and again. A couple of notes. First either tomatoes OR salsa is sufficient (I used "mexican" seasoned stewed tomatoes - way cheaper than salsa and just as flavorful). Second next time I will add extra veggies (corn zucchini carrots etc) to the mix. Third I had a hard time layering! Next time I will mix everything together except the cheese and tortillas - it's a casserole after all:) Finally I had to use a 9x12 or so baking dish! There's no way that volume of food would fit in an 8x8. Oh and I used corn tortillas - still unrefined (as is whole wheat) but more flavor and texture. Thanks for a new go-to recipe - this will be a great one for a week's worth of dinners!
Oh my gosh people, this is a keeper! Make a 9x13 pan of it and just cut slabs off of it for days! Each day in the fridge, it tastes better and better. Absolutely delicious and different. Kind of like a Mexican lasagna. Only changes I made was chopped green chiles instead of jalapenos and I made in a 9X13, just laying the tortillas in the pan and tearing them as I needed to fit the shape of the pan.
This is a great casserole. Our friends veggies and carnivores both like this one. I made a couple of changes of my own to it. I added more veggies such as corn peppers and onions. I also used corn tortillas instead of flour out of personal preference. Delicious thank you!
This is a great recipe for adapting - we've made it many times. It's entirely too much for an 8x8 though that wastes ingredients. We make it in a 13x9 like this: First lay down 2 tortillas side by side. Cover in refried beans. We use a small can of green chiles instead of jalapenos out of personal preference. Layer the rest of the ingredients in any order: peppers rice all of the TVP mixture salsa & cheese. Top with 2 more tortillas remaining refried beans some salsa we add diced onion here & the remaining cheese. We serve with Mexicorn on the side would be great in the dish as well maybe with some black beans as well. Top with sour cream corn on the side. It's really impossible to mess this dish up so change it up to what suits your needs & it will most likely still be great.
This was very good. Though we are not vegetarian so it was just easier for me to use ground turkey instead (1 pound). One reviewer wrote that canned tomatoes plus salsa was overkill so in place of the huge can of whole tomatoes I used a 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes which I just dumped in not bothering to save the 1/4 cup for later. This worked out to be the perfect amount of liquid for my 1 lb. of meat. Also used a larger casserole which it filled so do not even attempt the 8x8. Mixed diced jalapeños right in with meat instead of layering. I think sliced black olives on the top layer would have been a nice addition.
Yummy Yummy Yummy! I really enjoyed this for dinner. I changed things to match what I had on hand. I used about a cup of instant brown rice. I left out the soy burger-style crumbles just because I have no interest in trying them. I cooked the veg. refried beans in a saucepan with a 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos with none of the juices drained out. I added in my own taco seasoning instead of a packet. I used 4 fresh jalapenos and 1/4 of an onion that I threw in the pan with the beans and tomatoes. I also threw the salsa in the with the beans and the rice once it was cooked so I wouldn't have to do so much layering. I did a whole wheat tortilla then bean mixture and cheese another tortilla bean mixture and cheese then another tortilla and topped that with the rest of the cheese. I think this cooked 40 minutes altogether and I only let it rest 5 before I cut it ( I was too hungry to wait anymore! ) Will make again thanks for the great recipe.
