"Very good! Quick and easy dinner with minimal clean up. I used only one can of beans since I'm not a huge fan of them. I still liked the recipe a lot."
"Recipe saved! THANKYOU. J."
"Loved this recipe. It makes a wonderful hot nacho dip too! The only thing I would try when making this dish again would be to us half the amount of re-fried beans."
"This dish reminds me of the quintessential layered refried bean party dip--it didn't feel like a casserole per se. Used chicken instead of beef because that's what I had on hand. Next time I will substitute Mexican or Spanish rice for one can of the refried beans. It could use some extra spice--agree with many of the other comments about ramping up the heat. There are so many extra things you can use for garnish--sour cream, cilantro, salsa, lettuce. I also agree it would be excellent for tacos or burritos. Overall a good recipe and a fun one to play with."
"We loved this. Add sour cream and lettuce on top, it was a hit. Next time would use medium instead of mild can of green chilies and maybe medium instead of mild taco seasoning."
