This is a decent recipe with a few modifications. Fist, I could NOT find spicy chili beans, so I used small red beans. They work perfectly. Second, the recipe calls for no seasonings, so I add roughly 2 tablespoons of Taco Bell or whatever brand Taco seasoning to give it a nice taco flavor. Also, I always end up using the whole 8 oz container of sour cream. The stuff is so hard to spread. And finally, I've found that using the premixed Mexican blend package of cheeses works great. It's already grated and you get a lot more flavor. Those are just my tips for livening up this dish. Also, definitely serve with lettuce it helps add to the taco theme!
