We love Mexican food, and my DH loves hamburgers, so I thought this was perfect for us. However, we found them sort of bland, and cooking the refried beans in the meat just gave the burgers an odd flavor. If I tried it again I think I'd add taco seasoning to the meat and use the refried beans as a topping. These were OK, just not exactly suited to our tastes. Thanks anyway!
