    Loved this recipe! My husband said it was better than what he has had at our Mexican restaurant. I didn’t have any refried beans on hand but did have black beans so used those, besides that didn’t change a thing! Thanks for a great and easy recipe ☺️

    Made these last night and shared on my Insta story and people were going crazy asking for the recipe. In all honesty they exceeded my expectations–I was worried I’d not care for the spinach in them but I never tasted it really. They were a little slice of heaven. I adjusted things to fit my families likes because they like a bit more kick and then topped it with red enchilada sauce instead of salsa and used sour cream and guacamole for the topping and it couldn’t have been a bigger hit. Thank you so much for sharing! Your blog was a new find for me last week and I’ve been on here all the time. You have beautiful photos and recipes that are very appealing and not difficult!
