"I modified this recipe to suit our tastes. I added a little taco seasoning to the meat and stirred in the salsa. I added a little more taco seasoning to the re-fried beans . I used tostada shells instead of pita bread and added shredded lettuce and chopped tomato, put in a 350 degree oven just until the cheese melted. Really good. Added sour cream and the onions. Really good."
