Directions

Crumble sausage and beef in a large frying pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until meat is lightly browned.
Remove meat and discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings.
Add onion, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne; continue cooking, stirring, until onion is limp.
Stir in refried beans, olives, and chilies; reduce heat to low and cook, stirring, until bubbly and hot.
Stir in 1 cup of the cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
Turn into a shallow 1 1/2-quart baking dish.
Sprinkle remaining 1 cup cheese over top.
Broil about 6 inches from heat just until cheese melts (about 3 minutes).
Mound sour cream in center; sprinkle with radishes and green onion.
Spoon mixture into lettuce leaves, roll up, and eat out of hand.
