A staple around my house. They freeze well too and make a great lunch. I usually make 10 at a time and freeze them in individual baggies. Very easy to make too! Thanks for sharing!
I'm not a stickler on the points, so I made a few changes. I used a little less salsa, omitted the chili peppers and used black beans (drained) instead of refried beans. We really enjoyed them and I will make them again. Thanks for posting!
