I made this Mexican turkey casserole for my family the day after Thanksgiving. They gobbled it up. Lol. It's a great change of pace from reheating leftovers, for those who love Mexican food.

Everyone LOVED this. We even made a vegetarian version for my daughter. YUM.YUM.YUM. We added a can of Green Chilis for some kick. This is a definite 'make again' for our family. Read More

We loved this! I added a small can of chilies as I saw that suggestion in another review and only used one can of black beans. I used Tri-Color Tortilla strips instead of tortilla chips. It looked so pretty. I served it with sour cream, avocado, and lime. The squeeze of lime really makes a difference. Read More

Made as written minus the corn I didn't have any and I needed to prep and assemble in early afternoon for an evening supper. I used medium salsa which I highly recommend. It gives enough heat to keep the casserole from being bland. I also used more turkey to finish the leftovers and I don't think it negatively impacted the dish. I liked a glob of sour cream with my serving and I think it sliced and served neatly because I assembled it early. You could also kick in some sliced black olives! As written with the extra cup or so of turkey it easily served 4-6 Read More
