    Very Good
    I used equal amounts of rotel and black beans and didn't have spiciness issues. I also made it more lasagne style, using 1.5 cups of drained lowfat cottage cheese instead of the cream cheese and left that as a layer, the beans as another and the veggies as a third. Caution: makes 6 to 8 servings. - 3/29/09

    Very good--I need to work to balance the flavors against the spiciness but it's definitely worth fine tuning for my family's tastes. I used a whole jar of medium salsa and only one can of Rotel and it turned out spicier than I had intended. - 7/20/08
