  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 cups crushed tortilla chips
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • Optional toppings: sliced jalapenos, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, low-fat sour cream


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Cook the Ground Turkey or Beef:
    • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground turkey or beef until browned and cooked through, breaking it apart with a spoon as it cooks. Drain any excess fat.
  3. Add the Vegetables and Seasoning:
    • Add the diced onion and bell pepper to the skillet with the cooked meat. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, until the vegetables are softened.
    • Stir in the taco seasoning and cook for another minute, until fragrant.
  4. Combine the Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked meat and vegetable mixture with the black beans, corn, diced tomatoes with green chilies, and salsa. Stir until well combined.
  5. Assemble the Casserole:
    • Spread half of the crushed tortilla chips in an even layer on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with half of the meat and vegetable mixture, then sprinkle with half of the shredded cheese. Repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients.
  6. Bake the Casserole:
    • Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Remove the foil from the baking dish and let the casserole cool for a few minutes before serving.
    • Garnish with your favorite toppings such as sliced jalapenos, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, and low-fat sour cream.
