Chalupas

Recipe By : Dina
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Vegetarian

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups fat-free refried beans
1/2 cup salsa
garlic salt, chili powder, & cumin -- to taste
8 Old El Paso-brand tostada shells
4 ounces shredded lowfat cheddar cheese -- (or Mexican blend)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix refried beans, salsa, and seasonings with a wooden spoon in a pan over a low-medium heat on the stove. When well blended and softened, remove from heat. Spread 1/4 cup of bean mixture on each tostada shell. Top each shell with 1/2 ounce of shredded cheese.

Place chalupas on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for a couple of minutes until cheese is melted.

Note: Sometimes I add chopped tomatoes and/or onions on top of the refried beans before adding the cheese.

Yield: 4 servings (2 chalupas per person)

NOTES : 5 POINTS per serving: (2 points for the 2 tostada shells, 1 point for the refried beans, and 2 points for the cheese)

Note: I did not use M.C. nutritional analysis because the values shown for tostada shells is not correct and over-inflates the total values.
