I made an individual plate for myself so didn't have to be too fussy with measurements. Followed the directions for assembly and served with Recipe #39350 but skipped the Guacamole (personal preference - yuk) This was a great evening snack with a Recipe #173130. Thanks for posting Little Bee! Made for When It's Hot Tag Game.

My kids love this recipe as a movie snack, but instead of refried bean I cook beef mince with grated onion, carrots and brocolli stem,(removing the tough outer skin before grating). They have no idea that there junk food is so good for them.
