I made this receipe last night, followed all directions, and I couldn't fit all the filing into a 2 qt pan. So I would recommend using a bigger pan or only using 1 can black beans, 1 can mexicorn, 1 can diced tomatoes w/ green chiles. I just froze the left overs to make the cassarole another day. Don't let my comments fool you, this was a darn good dinner! Eating leftovers tonight! Thanks for sharing a great receipe!
