July 11- Taco Casserole

Taco Casserole
(Original recipe from El Paso; I made a few minor tweaks.) 
1.25 lb  extra lean ground turkey 
1 16oz can refried beans
1 16oz container of chunky salsa
1 1oz package of taco seasoning
2 cups broken tortilla chips
4 medium green onions, sliced
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup sliced olives
1 cup shredded cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350. 
2. Cook turkey on medium-high 5-7 minutes, in a large skillet. Stir occasionally. Once the meat is cooked, drain any excess oil. Stir in beans, salsa, and taco seasoning. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. 
3. Scatter crushed tortilla chips along the bottom of an ungreased casserole dish. Top with meat/bean mixture. Sprinkle with pepper, onion, tomato, cheese, and olives.
4. Bake 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted. 
5. Serve. Top with sour cream, hot sauce, or shredded lettuce if desired.
