Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Heat some butter in a 9 to 12" cast iron or oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers and onions and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and saute another minute. Add the refried beans to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook until warmed and easy to stir, about 4 minutes. Then add the enchilada Sauce and stir to combine. Adjust seasonings and add salt and pepper, to taste. Top with 1-1/2 cups of the cheese and mix to combine. Top with the reserved cheese and place in the oven.
Bake until the cheese is melted and just beginning to brown, about 20 minutes.
Top with optional garnishes. Serve warm.
