      Fabulous dish! Everything about this was great - the ease of prep, the clear and accurate instructions, the color and look of the finished dish, and the wonderful taste. Even the amount of heat was perfect - very spicy, enough to clear those sinuses, but not enough to overpower the rest of the ingredients. I did use the full tsp of hot sauce as well as a whole chili pepper (which I partially seeded). Thanks - a real winner!

      What a wonderful dish! Today is cinco de mayo and my family loved this. What a wonderful way to change up breakfast eggs. I layered warmed up corn tortillas, covered with retried beans, eggs, sauce and Topped with cheese. if I would have had sour cream, I think that would have been a nice touch in top. Cooked exactly as written....used fresh tomatoes...

      This was excellent! I substituted fresh cuban oregano from my yard rather than dried. I only had a red bell pepper so used this instead of the green pepper. I served this on top of 4 small toasted corn tortillas topped with 2 tablespoons each refried beans and topped with shredded manchego cheese. It was very delicious-we enjoyed it for brunch but it would make an excellent meatless supper.
