Zesty Refried Bean Cheese Dip

Kathleen made this one afternoon.  It was very easy to make and it was ZESTY!  depending on the size of the jalapeno, you may want to start with 1/2 of one.
Zesty Refried Bean Cheese Dip

1 15 ounce can refried black beans (pinto would work, too!)
1 8 ounce block cream cheese
1 packet taco seasoning (start with half a packet and taste it)
1 15.5 ounce jar salsa We only used about 1/2 cup--a thin layer
2 cups shredded cheese We only used about a cup
1 jalapeño, sliced
1 bag tortilla chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add refried beans and cream cheese to a microwave safe bowl The dish you're baking in is fine.

Heat for 45 seconds or until warm enough to stir together.  Add taco seasoning to the bowl and mix.

Spread bean mixture into an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish then top with salsa, shredded cheese and jalapeño slices.

Bake for 25 minutes, broil at the end for about 2 minutes to get a nice crust on top. Let cool slightly, and serve with tortilla chips.

We also topped with sliced avocado...guacamole would be great!
