I was given this recipe while I was doing my student teaching! It's one of my favorites. I have found that I prefer it with lower fat versions of sour cream and refried beans. You can also increase the zing by adding: chilies or jalapenos to the sour cream mixture. Serve with guacamole, lettuce, fresh tomatoes, etc. Can be made in advance and refrigerated/frozen.
