Tex Mex Turkey Casserole

"This is a spicy casserole. When I made this casserole I used 1 pound fresh ground turkey (fresh is needed as before I tried frozen ground and my meat was soupy), I used 16oz of black beans, I used Campbell's creamy tomato soup (Campbell's has discontinued creamy ranchero tomato soup I can only find it online), I used Wegman's whole grain tortilla chips. Note: I needed to spray my pan with cooking spray as my turkey began to stick also I recommend adding the chili seasoning after the turkey is cooked so you know the turkey is completely cooked. When I make this again I plan to use regular taco seasoning, and regular corn as my family thought this was way to spicy. I found this recipe in Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Slow Cooker Recipes cookbook. Note: If you don't have individual casseroles, spoon the mixture into a 2-quart casserole. Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until hot."

<p>Square Meals Make Round People - Author Unknown <br /><br />Do It With Love---It Will Taste Better - Author Unknown <br /><br />I joined zaar in 2002 but I really didn't use it much on until 2006 after my computer crashed and I lost all my unsaved recipes. Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well. I really love collecting different cookbooks. I have over a 100 and growing! I collect mostly Taste Of Home &amp; community cookbooks. The minute I get a cookbook home I sit down and I read my cookbooks from front to back like novels. I work for the Elmira City School&nbsp;District and YWCA. I'm raising my&nbsp;8 yrs old newphew. I'm a part time college student studing Early Childhood Education, but taking time off and hoping to return soon. I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own. I lost&nbsp;four of my very dear children (kitty's) Callie June 2007, Miss Kitty in March 2010, my dog Angel in December 2010, and my other cat Chase in September&nbsp;2011. I'm recently&nbsp;married on August 12th 2010. I love spending time with my niece&nbsp;9 yrs old and my newphews&nbsp;7 &amp;&nbsp;8 yrs old. I enjoy couponing and trading coupons. I love the internet as there's so much to look at online even though you know where I spend most of my time! I enjoy going to yard sales and estate sales every spring - fall. I love gardening and have many different pretty flowers.</p> 8724441"
