    Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Top with bell pepper and jalapeño chile. Re-cover; microwave on Medium for an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is almost melted. Lift waxed paper slowly to allow steam to escape when looking at cheese melt. Pie pan will be hot; carefully remove from microwave oven. Let dip stand 2 minutes; uncover. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.

  • For entertaining make the dip in a pretty fluted quiche dish or on a decorative, microwave-safe platter.
  • To prepare in oven, heat oven to 350°F. In 9 or 10-inch quiche dish or pie pan, combine beans and green chiles; spread evenly in dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Top with bell pepper and jalapeño chile. Bake at 350°F. for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
