  • Step 2

    Combine refried beans and salsa in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until blended and heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Arrange tortilla chips on the baking sheet. Spoon refried bean mixture over chips. Sprinkle pepper Jack cheese, green bell pepper, and onion on top.

  • Step 4

    Cook under the preheated broiler until cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Garnish with lettuce and olives.

  • Cook's Notes:

    If we don’t have a can of salsa, my husband (recipe creator) will use some of the juice of a jar of pepperoncini or jalapenos.

    You can try these with meat too. They are great with grilled chicken.
