  • 10 ounce Bag Scoop Shape Tortilla Chips
  • 16 ounce Can Refried Beans
  • ¼ cup Shredded Cheddar Jack Cheese finely shredded if available
  • ¼ cup Sour Cream use the squeeze tube for added convenience
  • 2 Tomatoes seeds and flesh removed, diced small
  • ¼ cup Black Olives sliced or chopped
  • 3-4 tablespoons Green Onions thinly sliced


  • Preheat the oven to 300°F
  • Arrange the tortilla scoop chips on a large baking sheet. Using a small scoop or spoon add about ½ - 1 teaspoon of refried beans in each tortilla chip. Leave enough room for the toppings.
  • Top the refried beans with a pinch of cheese.
  • Bake the tortilla chips for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
  • Finally, top each chip with a dollop of sour cream, a few tomato pieces, black olives and green onions.
  • It’s best to do this assembly line style, dot each chip with the sour cream, then the tomatoes, and so on.
  • Arrange the mini taco bites on a serving tray.


Pour the refried beans in a bowl and give them a good stir so they loosen. If they are still stiff, add a teaspoon of water and heat them a little bit. This should do the trick. It will be easier to fill the cups if the refried beans are loose.
For easy dispensing, purchase the sour cream in a squeezable container. If you can’t find that, use a plastic squeeze bottle, or add the sour cream to a zip top bag and cut off a small piece of the corner.
