  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 can refried beans
  • ¼ cup vegetable broth
  • 6 oz. thick tortilla chips
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 6 oz. grated cheese (about 1½ cups)
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and diced
  • Salsa
  • Greek yogurt (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add refried beans and broth. Cook, stirring occasionally, until combined and heated through.

Arrange tortilla chips on an ovenproof platter or baking sheet. Pour refried beans over the chips. Sprinkle evenly with black beans and cheese and bake for about 5 minutes, until cheese is completely melted. Remove from oven and top with avocado. Serve immediately with salsa and Greek yogurt, if desired.
