Easy Fiesta Beans
Recipe from Eating Well
Serves 6

What I used:

  • 1 15-oz can fat-free refried beans
  • 1 15-oz can reduced sodium pinto beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup store-bought salsa
  • 2/3 cup reduced fat shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 4 scallions, sliced

What I did:

  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
  2. Combine refried beans, pinto beans, salsa and 1/3 cup cheese in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the mixture is hot and the cheese is melted, 6-8 minutes.
  3. Transfer the bean mixture into a baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining 1/3 cup cheese and scallions. Broil until the cheese is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
