Refried Beans topped with Cheese
by Jes Mostek
serves: 4
  The staple side-dish for Mexican meals: refried beans topped with melted cheese.
  1 can   refried beans
  1/2 c.   grated Cheddar cheese
  Heat refried beans either in the microwave, or on the stovetop. Be sure to keep the beans covered, and stir occasionally to prevent splatters and to heat evenly. When the beans are hot, transfer to a serving dish, top with grated cheese (really, and kind of hard cheese will work), and cover with a lid or dinner plate until cheese melts. You may need to microwave it for another minute to speed along the melting process.
