Turkey Taco Lasagna

  • 1 T. bacon fat or other cooking fat
  • 1 tsp. southwestern seasoning (choose your favorite variety)
  • 1 lb. diced, cooked turkey
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 c. chopped sweet pepper (multiple colors are nice)
  • 2/3 c. corn kernels
  • 1 (14 oz.) can salsa style roasted tomatoes/li>
  • 3 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 c. grated cheese
  • 1/4 c. sliced green onions

In a medium skillet, heat the cooking fat until melted and hot. Add the seasoning, diced turkey, chopped onion, minced garlic, chopped pepper, and corn; stir well to evenly coat everything with the seasoning and fat. Add the tomatoes (undrained) and stir well again. Remove from the heat.

Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray and place an 8-inch flour tortilla in the bottom of the dish. Spoon about half of the turkey mixture over the tortilla and then carefully place another tortilla over the top of the turkey mixture in the pan. Spoon the remainder of the turkey mixture over that tortilla and place the final tortilla over the top of the turkey mixture. Sprinkle the top of the final tortilla evenly with the grated cheese and green onions.

Bake the assembled dish in an oven that's been preheated to 350° F for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Allow the dish to rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before slicing into servings.
