Great flavour...a bit spicy which I love. Made it a day ahead. Heated in a pot then placed in serving dish with fresh toppings. I doubled it for a gathering and there was only a couple spoons left. Yum!

Great recipe, we loved it. Along with chips, I also served it with chunked avacado and tomato. This recipe will go in my tried & true collection.

Upped the amounts of green and red peppers on top, added more cheese, and served it as a meal pre-assembled like nachos. My son loved it! Omitted black olives though because I don't like them, added more green instead.

This dish is delicious - if I changed anything, it would be to add more japapeno pepper.Does anyone know how this would freeze? I did make it a day before serving and rewarming..it did fine. A great party dish!!!

Very good. Not something typical with refried beans. I'm also glad to see that another reviewer knows that cooks (in Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic) use oregano and black pepper more than spicy chilies.

I have never made anthing with so many ingredients, but it was very good! I left out the Jalapeno pepper and parsely. I also browned the meat and peppers and onions and then put it in a crockpot with all the other ingredients and let it simmer. Good stuff!
