10 ounces (one 16-ounce can) canned pinto beans -- rinsed and drained

"What isn't Irish in me is Bohemian. My Grandma Nowachek might wonder about these Mexican main-dish rolls inspired by her kolaches, but I'm sure after she tried one she would be pleased. My son Tommy thought they were wonderful. And this is coming from the kid who told me when he was six that he was "allergic to pinto and kidney beans!"

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a large cookie sheet with olive-flavored cooking spray. Evenly space frozen rolls on sheet. Cover with cloth and let thaw and rise, about 4 hours. Make an indentation in center of each roll. In a medium bowl, mash pinto beans with a fork. Add salsa, chili seasoning mix, and Cheddar cheese. Place full tablespoon of mixture in center of each roll. Cover loosely again with cloth and let rolls rest for 10 minutes. Quickly spray top of each roll with olive-flavored cooking spray. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and quickly spray again with olive-flavored cooking spray. Good warm or cold. Serves 8 (2 each). Freezes well.
