"Instead of refried beans (which I loathe), I used Black Beans. I cooked both the turkey, onion and peppers along with chili powder, cumin, and oregano. then followed the rest of the directions. Was tasty!"

"These were really good. I used ground beef instead of turkey since I don't like the texture of ground turkey."

"Good - but my DH and I wanted to kick up the spice so we used refried beans w/ jalepeno pepper and also added taco seasoning. With these additions it was wonderful!"
