Mug Meals
Think of these microwave nachos as a tortilla casserole. Feel free to customize with the salsa and toppings of your choice and to swap in guacamole for the fresh avocado. To cut down on sodium, use low- or no-salt refried beans and salsa.

  • Step 1

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

  • Step 2

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

  • Step 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.

  • Step 4

    Cover and microwave until most of the cheese melts, about 
1 minute. Uncover and microwave until the remainder of the cheese melts, about another 30 seconds. Top with the avocado and other garnishes, and serve with additional chips, if desired.
