These are really good! I added some sauteed onions and corn to mine, and a few diced peppers. Good stuff!

I needed something easy with things already in the kitchen and this was it! I always seem to adjust recipes so this is what I did: I added 2 more cans of beans, the whole 8oz of cream cheese instead of just 4oz, a sprinkle of chili seasoning, lots of garlic and used green chili enchilada sauce. I really liked this. Very easy, economical and yummy.
