Bean Burrito Mac & Cheese

This is one of my inventions. It was different, but Brian and I liked it. Chloe, not so much. This is what you need:

*Approx. 4-5 cups macaroni noodles
*1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese--divided
*1 can refried beans
*1 can tomato sauce
*1 tbsp lime juice
*salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to taste.
*sour cream or salsa optional

Cook noodles in boiling water for 10-12 minutes. Drain. In the meantime, heat refried beans and tomato sauce in sauce pan until heated through. Add seasonings. Stir in about 1/4 cup of cheese. Stir until melted. Add bean mixture to noodles and pour into a baking dish. Put remaining cheese on top. Broil for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serve with sour cream or salsa.
