    Made this for a party and it was fabulous. I added a chilli and some spring onions to the refined beans with a bit of sour cream and whizzed it which improves the flavour of the canned taste and the overall heavy texture, it became more whipped and light. Also meant I didn't have to use the powdered taco mix much nicer actually. Definitely recommend. Use fresh avocado not dip mashed it with lemon juice and chives added salt & pepper.  -  21 Dec 2013


    I added the taco seasoning to the sour cream and used canned diced tomatoes (to make it easier). It was ABSOLUTELY delicious and a definite crowd-pleaser.  -  20 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I make this often and my family loves it. I would suggest mixing the taco seasoning into the refried beans.  -  30 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
