    This recipe was good. I sprayed the bottom of the pan & the bottom shells were kind of stuck. Guess I didn't spray enough. When the mix had to simmer, since all the juices are drained from all cans I added some water to the mix so the mix could have something to "simmer" in. Overall I enjoyed it! - 5/29/15

    My family loves this recipe. I omit the jalapenos, and use frozen corn rather than canned to lower the sodium content. I have made this many times, sometimes subbing pinto beans for the black beans, and either way, it's wonderful. This is now a staple in our recipes, and i hope you love it too. - 1/8/15
