Weight Watchers: Microwave Potato Nachos

I've recently found 2 Weight Watchers cookbooks at a thrift store and this recipe looked SO good in the book.
SEE!  (And it's so easy to make.)
So I decided to make them and I thought I would share the recipe with you guys.

What you need:
1 Large baking potato, scrubbed
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/3 cup bottled chunky salsa
1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1 scallion, sliced

First, cut the potato into 3/8-inch-thick slices; arrange in a single layer in a microwavable dish.  Sprinkle the potatoes with the cumin, salt, and pepper.
Cover with plastic wrap, then prick a few holes in the plastic to vent.  Microwave on high until tender, 6 minutes.
Spoon the salsa over the potatoes; sprinkle with beans and cheese.  Microwave, uncovered, on Medium until the cheese is melted, 1 1/2 - 2
 minutes.  Sprinkle wit the scallion and serve at once.
This is what mine looked like:
Not as pretty...but very yummy!
