1 can of refried beans, or make your own about 2 cups
4 Flour tortillas
1 can of green chiles, chopped or one bunch of green onions, chopped (both are optional, for my kids I leave it out)
1-2 cups of grated cheddar
Spray a 9" cake pan with Pam.  Spread refried beans on one tortilla.  Top with at least a 1/3 cup of cheese, 1/3 of the green onions or chiles if using.  Repeat two more times.  Top with plain tortilla.
Bake in oven at 400 degrees, until golden brown on top, tortilla should be crisp.  Turn upside down on a cutting board, cut in six pieces like pie.  Serve with Salsa, Guacomole, and Tortilla Chips.
This is a really quick meal.  Make as many as you need to feed your family.  One pan feeds  two people around here, usually.  You can also leave the beans out and just do cheese if you like.  Jerry and I like fresh tomatoes from the garden sliced and on them.  Make them your own.

How to make your own refried beans... Take about 2 cups of cooked and seasoned pintos.  Heat, mashing with a potato masher occasionally.  Add a sprinkle of garlic salt and chili powder.  Stir.  Cook until hot and semi-smashed.
