I made this as directed, layering the ingredients as another reviewer mentioned. It was good and we ate it up, but a little bit strong on the onions. If I make it again, I will omit either the chopped onion or the green onion and not use both kinds.
Everytime I make this people ask for the recipe. It's a user friendly recipe that can be altered to any taste! I generally have found that layering the beans and other ingredients on top of the cream cheese works best for me (rather that around the edges.)
