Amy’s Tortilla Casserole & Black Beans Review

Amy's Tortilla Casserole & Black Beans

When you walk down the frozen food aisle, you’ll see a lot of similar-looking meals. There are plenty of mac & cheese dishes; we’ve reviewed several of them. You’ll notice a lot of pasta dishes, and you’re sure to see a lot of burritos. What you don’t see a lot of are dishes that contain tortilla chips. Amy’s Tortilla Casserole & Black Beans does.

Although it’s an appealing alternative to some of the more popular freezer meals on the market, this dish doesn’t quite hit the mark.

The black beans are absolutely delicious. While you can’t see much of the Monterrey Jack cheese in this picture, this dish contains the ideal amount of cheese. Everything in the dish is well seasoned, and the organic tofu adds some interesting texture to the meal.

What hurts this dish is the texture of the tortilla chips. For the most part, chips don’t do well in the microwave. These chips are soft, chewy, and missing the kind of crunch that would bring the whole meal together. While we haven’t tried heating this bowl up in the oven, we suspect that an oven-cooked meal would have a much better texture.

Mexican food has a lot of appeal, but it can be difficult to replicate that allure in the microwave. Amy’s Tortilla Casserole & Black Beans dish definitely isn’t bad, but it might not be enough to curb your casserole cravings.
