"Thanks for sharing the recipe. We loved it. I ran out of beans for the last one (just shy by 1 Tbls). I added onion to the beef while it was cooking too. Also we used more cheese, can you ever have enough cheese? (We don't think so.) Turned out wonderful and nice to have the 2nd pan in the freezer ready for another night when I don't feel like cooking. Since there are only 2 of us, we should have made several smaller 8x8 pans instead of 9x13, but I always follow the recipe exactly as possible the first time through and make changes the next time if needed. I think that will be the only other change we'll make next time. Thanks again for sharing such an "easy" recipe that makes enough for two suppers! Love it!!"
"This recipe in great! Not a big fan of refried beans, so we added black beans in the meat mixture. Something everyone liked and it made great leftovers!"
"Great twist on an old classic. We enjoyed them immensely. Definitely a keeper and love the quick and easy part!"
"These are quite tasty! They were easy to assemble, and it was great to be able to freeze a second dinner from the recipe. The frozen casserole cookked up just fine straight from the freezer, taking about 90 minutes. (I found this out by accident when I forgot to take it out the night before!)"
"My family loved these! I used some refried and some black beans since I had both in the fridge. I will make again and again!"
