    2 ounces crumbled Cotija cheese
    ½ large tomato, diced
    1 cup salsa of choice
    1 avocado, skinned, pitted and sliced
    1 can refried beans (I use Goya, but any brand works)

    Mix in shredded chicken, salt and pepper. Toss until well coated with oil. Stir in the salsa.

    Arrange tortilla chips on a large baking sheet or baking dish. Spread beans over the chips and top with the chicken mixture.
