Mexican Manicotti My Way Recipe @pinch

Laura was right when she said she did good and this Mexican Manicotti is a delicious reason why we love home cooking. It mashes up a Mexican and Italian dish for one yummy dinner. The ground beef and black bean mixture pipe into the manicotti shells are perfect. Spreading sour cream and shredded cheese on the top and then placing the casserole back in the oven for a few minutes, creates a gooey cheesy layer on top. This meal smells great, looks great, and makes a lot, too have perfect for a large get havetogether! I was undecided on what to fix for supper. I was teetering between Mexican and Italian, so I decided to experiment and this is what I came up with. I must say... I did good!
