I gave this three stars because it didn't really seem like a new recipe to try; rather, just an addition of refried beans into your basic taco. I liked the suggestion, but the mixture tasted VERY salty, even without the directed addition of more salt. I then tried to dilute it a bit with water, hoping to take some of the saltiness away. That helped, and the refried beans gave the meat more substance. Nothing to rave about, but definitely more filling than a typical taco.
My family gave this 5 stars! We also topped it with taco bell sauce. I don't know if they taste like taco bell, but they were very tasty and I will make them again! Thanks ChickNpie for a yummy recipe! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
