My husband is a big fan of Mexican food, but not many of those recipes are healthy. Plus with me having to go gluten free last year its been even more of a struggle finding recipes we both enjoy. And we all know I would much rather save my calories for a brownie after dinner (I’m all about dessert!!!). So the hunt began for a recipe we both liked that wasn’t high in calories and the kids would eat too. It took a few tries but this is the one we love!
1 Lb Lean Ground Turkey
1 Can Black Beans
Corn Chips (or any type of chips you like)
1-2 Cups Mexican Cheese (I use 2%)
1 Cup Corn
2 Cans Rotel Tomatoes (You can use 1 but I love tomatoes so do 2)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Saute your ground turkey and add spices or seasoning you like. I put taco seasoning on mine. While it cooks, put foil on a baking sheet and cover with your chips. I do one thin layer of chips and make them overlap. Next rinse the black beans and sprinkle half of them over the chips. Next add the corn and half of the rotel tomatoes. When the turkey is done, drain it and then spread over your chips. Top with cheese. You can do light cheese here, or more, its totally up to you. On the top I add more rotel tomatoes and more beans. You could also add onions and black olives if you like! Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until the cheese is all melted. Serve with salsa, guacamole or light sour cream! Enjoy!!
