I went to the market on Cinco de Mayo, and just cruised the Latin aisle til this whole thing came to me. It is a take off on another bake I make with that cornbread topping. We love Bush's Cocina Latina Frijoles, and the black beans are a special favorite. This would be good with some chopped sweet, or hot peppers to taste, but I didn't think of that until I got home without any! And I didn't take any pictures, since I had no idea how we would love this. NEXT time!!
