  • 1 pound ground turkey

  • 1 cup chopped onion

  • ¾ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers

  • cup water

  • 1 ½ teaspoons chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • 6 (6 inch) corn tortillas


  1. Crumble turkey into a large skillet over medium heat. Stir onion, bell pepper, and garlic into the turkey. Cook and stir until turkey is completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the kidney beans, black beans, diced tomatoes, water, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the skillet, and simmer for 10 minutes.

  2. Mix Cheddar cheese and Monterey jack cheese together in a bowl.

  3. Layer about 3/4 cup of the turkey mixture, 1 tortilla, and 1/2 cup the cheese mixture in the bottom of a 5-quart slow cooker; repeat layers until ingredients are fully used, ending with a cheese layer.

  4. Cook on Low until heated through, 5 to 7 hours.
