  • 6 Cups Tortilla Chips
  • 2 1/2 Cups Mel’s Pressure Cooker Refried Beans
  • 1 1/2 Cups Rotisserie Chicken shredded
  • 1 1/2 Cups Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1 1/2 Cups Tomatoes chopped
  • 1 Cup Lettuce shredded
  • 1 Cup Mashed Avocado
  • 1 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 Cup Green Onions sliced
  • 1/4 Cup Cilantro chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • On a large sheet pan, spread tortilla chips in an even layer.
  • Heat the beans and chicken until warmed through. Drizzle the beans over the chips and sprinkle the chicken and cheddar cheese on top.
  • Place the pan in the oven and broil on low just until the cheese melts.
  • Remove from oven and top with tomatoes, lettuce, dollops of avocado and Greek yogurt. Garnish with Green onions and Cilantro.


Serve with roasted vegetables to make a complete meal. I always have a steady supply of Rotisserie Chicken and Mel’s Pressure Cooker Refried beans in the freezer, so that makes this dish a total cinch. You can read more how I do the chicken here. And Mel has a great tutorial for freezing beans on her website as well here.
