Fiesta Beans

These were a definite hit at the party and using non-fat refried beans makes these healthy as well.  You can also use low or non-fat cheese to make these even more figure friendly.

1 16 oz. can nonfat refried beans
1 15 oz. pinto beans, drained
¾ cup prepared salsa (whatever heat level you wish)
1 cup shredded Mexican or Monterey Jack cheese
3 – 4 green onions, sliced on the diagonal

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Combine beans, salsa and ¼ cup cheese in a sauce pan and heat through over medium heat until the mixture is hot and the cheese melted.  This should only take a few minutes.

Pour the mixture into a greased, 2 quart baking dish and top with remaining cheese.  Place in oven for 10 – 15 minutes until bean mixture is bubbling and the cheese is browned.

Remove from oven and top with sliced green onions.
