An easy, tasty way to jazz up canned refried and pinto beans for the perfect side to accompany any Tex-Mex meal. Opt for fat-free refried beans and no-salt-added pinto beans to keep this dish as healthy as possible.
1 16-ounce c nonfat refried beans, preferably spicy
1 15-ounce c no-salt-added pinto beans, rinsed
1/2 cup prepared salsa
2/3 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
4 scallions, sliced
Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
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 to 8 minutes. Spoon the bean mixture into a 2-quart baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining 1/3 cup cheese and scallions. Broil until the cheese is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
