Amy's Tortilla Casserole & Black Beans BowlThis Amy’s Kitchen casserole is based on Chilaquiles, a Mexican dish. Amy had it adapted to have organic ingredients (duh), fewer hot spices (thank goodness) and less fat. The marketing on the back of the box claims that the result might remind you of a bowl of nachos. Nope.

The casserole is made of baked corn chips, melted cheddar and jack cheese, organic vegetables and tofu. The side dish contains seasoned black beans with a little cheese. It has tomatoes, too. This is a gluten-free and treenut-free dish.

I liked the black beans. It was like having a good side dish in a Mexican restaurant. Eating the casserole felt like I was having soft corn tortillas and not much else. It was OK. Not bad, not great. I just felt like the cheese and tofu were scarce. Now if it tasted like a bowl of nachos, then it would be something. I cooked it in the oven, not the microwave.
