    Getting ready to move and my beans were all packed but found Pinto beans when I opened the box back up and they worked just fine! Loved this meal and I'm a devout meat eater!

    Add a spoonful of guacamole, and this becomes a healthier version of Taco Bell's 7-Layer Burrito.

    Very quick and easy. I added 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning to the bean mixture while it was heating. Really added enough zip.
