  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 3-quart casserole dish.
  2. Mix turkey, chicken soup, tomatoes with green chiles, onion, bell pepper, 1 cup Cheddar cheese, mushrooms, garlic, and chili powder together in a bowl.
  3. Cover the bottom of the casserole dish with half the tortilla strips; pour turkey mixture onto tortilla layer. Top with remaining tortilla strips. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Sprinkle with 1 cup Cheddar cheese. Return uncovered dish to the oven and bake until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbling, 15 to 20 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I just finished eating my 3rd helping of this. I did alter the recipe a bit to use up some leftover corn and mashed potatoes. I added about 1/2 cup whole kernel corn to the turkey mixture. After...
