    Amanda Beth's Note:

    This is a yummy, yummy light meal. I developed this to counteract my Mexican cravings on Weight Watchers. It is 4 points according to the Recipe Builder. Top it with salsa, which is free, or add some sour cream. Just make sure you count the extra points.

      This was terrific! Following eebrag's lead, I topped the refried beans with salsa, then sprinkled on the cheese (I used both mozzarella and a mexican-blend), and baked at 350F for 10 minutes. The edges were crispy but the majority of the tortilla stayed soft; very nice texture and excellent taste. I am sure that this easy meal will become a regular for me when I need something just for myself. Thanks for posting!

      This is so quick and easy, I've made it several times now for lunch. Nowadays I usually add salsa on top of the beans & seasonings but before sprinkling with the cheese, then bake it with the salsa. Unless I'm in a hurry, I use a lower temperature--325F and cook it a bit longer--about 10 min. It comes out a bit softer that way, which is how I like it best.
