Chili Frito Bake

Recipe by Donna M.

This is a flavorful casserole that I concocted after experimenting with several recipes. It is very filling and makes a lot but is easily halved.

This is quick and easy, I used ground turkey and turkey chili con carne. It takes me back to when I was a kid. I think all kids will like this one - perhaps without the green pepper.
