|4 cups||tortilla chips|
|15 oz.||can refried beans|
|1 1/2 cups||diced tomatoes|
|1 tbsp.||minced, canned green chilies (optional)|
|1/4 cups||sliced black olives|
|1/4 cups||sour cream|
|6 oz.||shredded cheddar cheese (about 2 cups)|
|2 tbsp.||minced scallions|
- Preheat the oven to 400F. Choose a baking dish 9x13 inches, with 2 inch-high sides.
- Layer all the ingredients in the baking dish in the order given above. If the refried beans are too stiff to easily spoon over the chips, thin them with a little water.
- Bake about 15 minutes, until the beans are hot and the cheese is melted and bubbling.
- Variations: add corn kernels, shredded zucchini, or chopped cilantro to the assembly.
