We LOVE Mexican & Tex-Mex style recipes, but we get tired of tacos and nachos. So, when I stumbled upon a tortilla casserole recipe on Pinterest, I had to try it (and make it my own!)
Here’s what you need:
1lb ground turkey
1 taco seasoning packet
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 small white onion, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
1 can whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can diced tomato (with green chilies would be delicious)
1 cup light or fat free sour cream
4-8 large soft tortillas (I used regular flour, but you can use whole wheat)
2 cups shredded cheese – sharp cheddar or colby jack
Brown ground turkey and taco seasoning packet. Set aside to cool. Heat olive oil in skillet and saute peppers and onions for 5 minutes. Add chili powder & remove from heat.
In small bowl, add tomato and sour cream together and mix well. In another bowl, combine corn, beans and pepper/onion mixture.
In a round covered casserole dish, layer in the following order: tortilla, sour cream mixture, meat, tortilla, vegetable mixture, cheese. Repeat until you reach the top of the casserole. Make sure the final layer is cheese :)
Cook, covered, in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove cover and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes or until bubbly. Cut into 8 pie-like pieces. Serve with light sour cream!
