Turkey (or Chicken) Taco Bake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

I found this in a TOH magazine and tried it out because I could clean out my fridge of a bunch of odds and ends. It ended up being a hit with my family so I'm posting it. I changed a few things from the original as I made with what I had on hand. This is easy, quick, cheap and, best of all, delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups coarsely crushed corn chips
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
  • 2 cups shredded cheese, divided (your choice, I used a 4-cheese Mexican blend)

  • 2 cups shredded or chopped cooked turkey or 2 cups cooked chicken
  • 1 teaspoon Mexican seasoning or 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 medium tomatoes, chopped


  1. Place corn chips in a greased shallow 2 1/2 quart baking dish; place the refried beans in a medium saucepan; cook and stir over medium heat until heated through; remove from the heat; stir in 1 cup of the cheese and the salsa; spread mixture over the chips.
  2. Toss the turkey or chicken with the Mexican (or taco) seasoning; sprinkle over the beans mixture; top with remaining 1 cup of cheese; sprinkle with green onion.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 375°, for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped tomato.
