    Help me find this mexican casserole recipe!

    I can't remember where I saw it, but I know it sounded good and I want to find it again! It is definitely CL.

    Here is all I remember:

    It was vegetarian (used black beans, I think)
    It used corn tortillas
    It was prepared in an 11x7 pan (why do I remember that???)

    Any idea what I am talking about?

    KLynn - I did a search and came up with Mexican Chicken Casserole in Dec '98 issue of CL on page 118. Let me know if this is the one and if you need it posted. It calls for corn tortillas but I'm not sure on the 11X7 pan...

    hope this helps!

    Thanks so much for searching, cjm. This one is vegetarian, though.

    Klynn - there is also a recipe that I have that sounds similar from CL. It was incredibly easy, you just made up a mix from black beans, corn, salsa, etc. Layered it between corn tortillas and baked. Topped with yogurt (ok, sour cream in our house). I would post now but we are leaving in am for 10 days and I have to pack. If you think this is it, send me a instant message or whatever that thing is and I will email you the recipe when I get back!
