this dish tastes great. the combination of the zesty taste of the tuna with the creamy refried beans gives the dish a very distinct texture. i highly recommend it. Read More

Since I like tuna and refried beans separately I decided to give this a try even though I couldn't picture these two ingredients together. As I suspected this combination was too strange for me. I'm still giving it 3 stars for 2 reasons. One is that the recipe made exactly as written was edible although not enjoyable. Two is that I thought this was great with cheese substituted for the tuna which is how I ate the rest of it after the first serving. That creates a different recipe but I love the cheese version.

This recipe has some good points to it but overall does not work well together. I like the creaminess of the beans and I also like the tuna lime mixture but they absolutely do not taste good combined. Read More

These are quick and easy to make. I used solid white Albacore packed in water. The creaminess of the refried beans pair well with the tuna and lime. If you use a good quality tuna don't be afraid to make this. Read More

I made these for my family tonight (picky teenagers included). I used canned albacore tuna and refried black beans. We made one and split it between us as a trial since we were leery about the combination. Everyone loved it! I doubled the recipe for our family of 5 and we ate just about all of it. Read More
