Recipe by YnkyGrlDwndr

I just bunged this up last night for guests and it was well liked! Next time I am going to add some chopped coriander leaves in with the shredded lettuce.

I made a half recipe of this but used all the cumin and coriander listed. My refried beans had chilli in them, so I didn't add extra to them, but put some tabasco in the sour cream. I made my own guacomole and used a medium comercial salsa, I also added in some chopped fresh coriander to the lettuce. Our visitors really raved over this tonight and the guest who has had lap band surgery said I should recommend it as a dish easy to eat (for her at least).
