If you need to make something ahead of time, consider something which needs marinating time or something which will happily sit in the refrigerator and keep its quality. This recipe falls into the latter camp, and allowing it to sit for a few hours does not affect the flavor or texture of the dish. Spicy refried beans are topped with lettuce, cheese, salsa, green onions, sour cream, and more, so you get plenty of amazing Mexican flavors, as well as a beautiful-looking dish which everyone will be keen to try out. Serve this with tortilla chips, or with bread if you prefer.
