Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup canned refried beans
  • 3 tablespoons high-quality salsa

Make It

1. Spray the inside of a 12-oz. mug with cooking spray.

2. In a small bowl, stir together the beans and salsa.

3. Place half of the chips in the mug and top with a third of the cheese and half of the bean-salsa mixture. Top with the remaining chips, another third of the cheese, and the remaining bean mixture. Top with the remaining cheese.
