This is very good and easy. However, I think it needs a little more also. I served mine with a side of rice and a tossed salad. Next time I may add the rice to the meat mix and add in some sour cream. But simple and quick which is always a good thing. Congratulations on your football win.

Congratulations on your football pool win!! This is a good recipe but it had slightly too many refried beans and needed more contents.
