I made this exactly, for the Super Bowl, except left out the black olives. I couldn't find an 8-oz can of refried beans, so I used half of a 16-oz can. I spread it into a pie plate. It's very good, and I spooned the leftovers into tortillas with chicken the next day for a quick lunch. I've made versions of this before, and some call for taco seasoning mixed into the beans or sour cream -- I think this needs a little extra "spice." Thank you :)
