Thank you! It was something that my stepson and I totally enjoyed for an easy dinner. I've had a craving for nachos, and this helped. Thank you!
I made this exactly as stated. I enjoyed this SO MUCH while watching football yesterday (I ended up eating it ALL, by myself!!). This was so much better than the store-bought stuff in a jar. I tend to find that stuff too "vinegar-y", but this was not, AT ALL!! And I loved the addition of the refried beans, which made it a "heartier" dip. I will be making my salsa from now on. Thank You SO MUCH. Made in memory of your dear husband, October,2010.
Although I somewhat tweaked this a bit this was one great recipe enjoyed during the football game. I added a 1/4 teaspoon on chili powder, and paprika, used 2 cloves garlic, and added a slight bit more cheddar cheese, these were the way we like em, nice and spicy. Very much enjoyed during the ASuper Bowl. Made for PRMR tag.
