Cheesy Refried Beans



Cheesy Refried Beans

The final days until Christmas are here!! I find myself in frantic mood trying to squeeze in every last detail on my to-do list. My scheduled/organized house is now upside down, sideways and in much need of some TLC. Lucky me my family is more than happy to chip in and help out with dinner. Our normal dinner ritual might have changed a bit with the busy season, but as long as we come together as a family for our meals. I’m happy.



These cheesy refried beans came together easily with little prep (love this).We slathered them on baked tortillas and loaded them up with a combo of lettuce and cabbage, tomatoes and salsa. Enjoy!
