its good - Ruehs 9m ago

I reduced dressing by one-third - still way too much. Added lime juice and green tabasco sauce for more zip. Travels well - good for pot lucks.

I am used to the trader joe version. So I added black beans and jalapeño's. But was very excellent!

This is a great simple recipe! It never lasts long around here. I just throw in any beans I have on hand! Always turns out great!!!!

I make this alot! It's a big hit and it's an easy clean up because there's usually not much left!

This is by far, one of the most delicious dishes I have made. Everyone who has tried it loves it and asks for the recipe.
