Pintos and Pepper Jack

If you plan to make chicken and pepper jack quesadillas you’ll have enough leftover cheese to make this fabulous bean dip. It’s so easy and ready in about 7 minutes. I start with thawed pintos I’ve made in batches and frozen. I open a quart size bag and place in a microwave safe dish and microwave for five minutes on 70% power. The beans can be mashed with the back of a spoon if you like it creamy or leave whole if you desire as a side dish. Then I top with pepper jack cheese and homemade pico de gallo. I microwave on high for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until piping hot.

There are several ways to serve this frugal item:
