Picky Palate's Mini Bean and Cheese Burrito Cups

This is such an easy and kid-friendly recipe.  My kids loved these, Noah gave them a perfect 10, and Owen gave them a 9.  I gave them an 8, and Aaron gave them a 6, he felt like they were boring.  Again, kid-friendly :).  Anyway, Picky Palate has great fun ideas or kid foods, and this was a hit with mine.  Plus they are fast and easy to make, and I send them in the kids' lunch box for school as well.  Each muffin is only 97 calories.  Here's what to do:

2 cans refrigerated French bread loaves, cut into 24 pieces total
1 16 oz can refried beans
1 c shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 c salsa

Preheat oven to 350 and spray 2 12 count muffin tins with cooking spray.  Press each slice of bread dough into the muffin cups, then form them into little cups.  Mix together the beans, salsa, 1/2 c cheese, and salt.  Divide the bean mixture evenly between each muffin, and sprinkle with cheese.  Cook for 15 minutes in the prepared oven, and let cool a bit and then serve.  Yum!
