Spicy Cheesy Refried Beans

spicy cheesy refried beans01  These are dressed up refried beans.  They pair well with any Mexican or Tex-Mex entree and can be made mild, using regular refried beans.  I serve them alongside chicken fajitas.

Ingredients

  • 1 T butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (16 oz.) can spicy fat-free refried beans
  • 1 (4 oz.) package cream cheese, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until onion becomes translucent, 2 to 3 minutes.

Cook and stir refried beans into onion mixture until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir cream cheese into bean mixture. Spread mixture into a pie plate; top with Cheddar cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 20 minutes.
