    Crystal Rose's Note:

    This is a hearty but healthy meal that is easy to put together. Lean ground turkey and reduced-fat cheese make this a good low-fat casserole. We like tot top ours with Tabasco and low-fat sour cream. Choose your favorite salsa (chunky is my favorite). You could also use beef and Mexican blend cheese for a different dish.

      AMAZING!!! This was so good!! The only thing DH wanted to change was he said to add 2 lbs of ground turkey next time. But he is a carnivore so I am sure the average person wouldn't find this lacking in meat! I personally did not! This will be made again and again and I love that it is actually healthy and not loaded with fat and calories...try finding that at your neighborhood Mexican food place! haha! Thanks for posting Crystal Rosa...this was a WINNER!

      I just had to give this a 5 star rating per DH. He went back for seconds even though it had turkey meat in it. I cut the recipe in half, prepared it in a 7X11 dish. I used left over turkey taco meat so instead of the Mexican style tomatoes I used regular dice tomatoes. To add some heat I used El Pato hot Mexican tomato sauce and threw in a chopped jalapeno. I also used Mexican blend cheese. This had such a great flavor that it will be made again and again. Thanks, Crystal Rose for posting.
