I make bean dip using a can of refried beans, a layer of salsa over that and then a layer of grated cheese over that. Perhaps you could use the bean dip as the bottom layer?
It does not matter if it is a little bland because you have the salsa and cheese to spice it up.
ps you can also add a layer of avocado or cubed tomato.
Thanks for the suggestion. This sounds good. Guess I use recipe verbatum and this is what happens. I trust Dr Weil but his recipes are more for health than taste. Hence, I have to 'doctor' it up. Thanks glad I can count on all of you. Sure hate to feed the garbage can.
