"Exactly my point! Unless you have made and tasted this recipe, why do you you feel the need to rate it? Should one want to 'skinny down' Mexican food, one wold simply leaves out the Cheese, much like leaving out the Green Chilies because of the spiciness. This is a personal preference of the chef. It is not an appropriate issue for the rating system."

"Amen! There are a whole lot of us out here who are not worried about fat/calorie content, particularly of Mexican food. Calories/fat content go with the territory. There is not much "diet" Mexican food out there. The rating system is designed to tell us about taste and ease of preparation. If you haven't made this dish, don't downgrade a wonderful, great tasting recipe because you would rather eat cardboard! We loved it, although I didn't drain the Black Beans, did drain the Green Chilies, and added sauteed chopped onions. Note too, that this recipe is high in dietary fiber and Iron. The taste is great, not too spicy for the "average" eater. "

"Super recipe with some modifications, but I have been cooking for some years. The mushy topping, that hndodds and others have identified, can be cured by reducing the oven heat to 350-375 degrees. It is not a good thing to rush any topping. I was out of Black olives, so omitted, added a can of Mexicorn, instead of frozen, and added a medium Onion sauteed with the beef, and garlic powder. If you are expecting a spicy meal, this is not for you, but if you like a good tasting, layered flavor recipe....go for it! "

Great taste if you use the real stuff! The problem with this recipe is 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream, and 2 cups fat-free (skim) milk Nice in theory, but these fat-free products will curdle every time. UGH! Certain comfort foods should be left alone, with their original ingrediants.
