Turkey Taco Casserole with Tortilla Chips Recipe
1 lb. ground turkey
2 cups salsa (I use EatWholly Salsa)
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup sour cream
1 cup cottage cheese
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (or whatever cheese you want to use)
2 cups tortilla chips (I use Whale Tails Chips organic tortilla chips)
optional: black olives, scallions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Brush coconut oil on the bottom & sides of a 9 x 13 baking dish.
In a large skillet brown the ground turkey.
Add salsa and black beans.
Cook 1-2 minutes to allow flavors to come together.
Remove from heat.
In a small bowl, stir the sour cream, cottage cheese and 1 cup of the shredded cheese together.
Scatter half of the tortilla chips over the bottom of the prepared pan.
Top with half of the meat mixture, then all of the cottage cheese mixture.
Spread the remaining tortilla chips on top.
Sprinkle with the remaining meat mixture and remaining shredded cheese.
Cover with foil and bake 15 minutes.
Remove foil and bake another 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
*If you’re using black olives and/or scallions, put them on top of the casserole after you remove the foil and cook for the additional 5-10 mins til cheese is melted.
