I am quite a snob when it comes to the food world. So when I happened on your blog I was surprised to discover so many great recipes. Thanks; I am a fan!

As a Texan, I can rightfully say that kidney beans are blasphemy in this dish! It would be so much better with pinto!!! I make a Mexican lasagna very similar to this, but use corn tortillas and put in a layer of a mixture made out of chipotle, sour cream, and a bit of mayo all blended together. It's creamy and addictive... I'll have to combine recipes :)

Shelbyrlff: The chipotle and mayo combo is an addictive one and adding some sour cream could only make it better. I will have to try adding this creamy layer next time!
