MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 20, 2014

"I have made these for 4 years in a row at summer cookouts. Everyone just loves these and they usually do not last long. I have made a few changes in the recipe. I add fresh pico de gallo along with the shredded lettuce. I do not use the green chilies or the olives. I also add more of the taco seasoning to the cream cheese/bean mixture."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 21, 2010

"I did not like how these turned out. They were soggy and a little bland. I'd add some cilantro next time and maybe less beans and cheese. the bean/cheese probably made them too soft and soggy."
