fat free refried beans

Optional: salsa, low fat sour cream.
I ran out of packaged taco seasoning one time and, being to lazy to run out for more, I googled a recipe for it. Since I had everything on hand I just mixed it up myself. I love the flavors of all the spices mixed fresh and the packaged stuff tastes funny to me now.
I use full fat tortilla chips and cheese because I find the dish much more satisfying that way. This way I know that I'm eating a good meal that isn't going to leave me hungry or be boring.
For Nachos I preheat the oven to 400F. Add half the chips to a pizza pan or cookie sheet, dot half the beans and chicken all over followed by half the cheese. I repeat with the remaining ingredients and bake it for 10 minutes. I like layering it because I think the flavors come together better than if I were to just pile one ingredient on top of another. If I'm feeling really indulgent, I will serve it up with a little low fat sour cream and some salsa.
Serving Size: makes one large serving of delicious nachos as a meal, or split it with someone as a fabulous snack.
