Prep: 5 minutes

1 lb. raw extra-lean ground beef (at least 96% lean)

One 15-oz. can fat-free refried beans

1/2 cup salsa

1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese

1/3 cup light sour cream

1/3 cup sliced scallions

Optional topping: sliced jalapeños

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" (or similar) baking pan with nonstick spray.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add beef and 2 tsp. taco seasoning. Cook and crumble until fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Transfer to the baking pan.

In a medium bowl, mix beans with remaining 1 tsp. taco seasoning. Spread mixture over the cooked beef. Top with salsa and cheese.

Bake until entire dish is hot and bubbly and cheese has melted, about 20 minutes.

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected? We follow the same method as WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) when calculating the value of a recipe: We add up the SmartPoints® values* of the individual ingredients using the Recipe Builder, not the calculator. (Many foods have a value of zero and remain zero in recipes.)

*The SmartPoints® values for these products and/or recipes were calculated by Hungry Girl and are not an endorsement or approval of the product, recipe or its manufacturer or developer by WW International, Inc., the owner of the SmartPoints® trademark.
