    I love casseroles like this so much. The turkey makes it slightly healthier and so I don't feel so bad eating several helpings!

    If I could give 4 and half stars I would. It is an excellent kid pleaser. I used lime flavored corn tortilla chips, because that was what I had; the kids loved it. I had my 3 kids, my sister's 5 picky kids and an 9x13 pan. It was finished off in 15 minutes.

    This dish was easy to prepare and quite tasty. We like our food spicy so I added two diced jalapenos and a heavy shake of red pepper flakes. My fiancee is not a sour-cream person so I cubed an 8 oz. container of cream cheese and used that instead (which tasted great!) but I will make the cubes smaller next time. Also, instead of plain tortillas I used green chile tortillas, and instead of plain salsa I used a tequila lime salsa. Will definitely make this one again!

    This was really good. While cooking the turkey/onion mixture, I added some chopped green pepper. When it was finished cooking, I added 3/4 of a can of kernel corn and stirred it in. Everything else I did as your recipe said and we loved it. The hubby crumbled some Tostitos on top of his serving for some crunch and we both decided that this mixture, minus the flour tortillas, would make a really tasty hot dip. We're going to try that out on the family at the next gathering.

    Very good, and easy to throw together! I used taco seasoning from recipe #4292, and froze half of the ground turkey to use another time. Scaled down to 8x6 pyrex pan for our small family, so only used 4 tortillas, and one-half can beans. I didn't realize my sour cream was expired until I went to use it, so I substituted one-half package of cream cheese (yum!). I just sandwiched all the filling between torn-tortilla "crusts", then covered it in cheese. At any rate, it was fantastic, and will become a regular at my house!

    I am basing this off my husbands opinion. He liked the change to the turkey. I don't really care for turkey, but I had some too use up. Maybe I will try it with ground beef. I added corn, green onions, and black olives. I was also thinking of using a can of diced tomatoes, but i didnt want to get too far from the original recipe. I also used pinto beans instead of black beans. My daughter didn't really care for it either. I ate it with siracha on top to hide the turkey taste.


I have lived in Michigan all my life and always enjoyed watching my mom in the kitchen. It wasn't until I got married until I really started to enjoy cooking. I love to experiment with new recipes and create my own. My mother-in-law grew up Amish so I have also learned SO many great great cooking tips from her.
