Turkey Taco Bake

A great make ahead that you can toss in the freezer and thaw when you are ready.



  1. Brown the turkey and onions in a non-stick pan.
  2. When the turkey is opaque, add the taco seasoning and a little bit of water to help distribute the seasoning.
  3. Stir in the refried beans and the canned tomatoes.
  4. Spray a 9x13" glass baking dish with non-stick spray, and line the bottom of the dish with crushed tortilla chips.
  5. Spread the turkey mixture on top of the chips, then top with 1/2 of the cheese. Repeat this layering with the other half of the turkey mixture and the cheese.
  6. Bake in a 375 °F (190 °C) oven for about 25 minutes until the cheese is all melted.
  7. Serve on top of shredded lettuce with tomatoes and possibly fat free sour cream.
  8. Note: once cooled down to room temperature, you can put it in a ziploc freezer bag and into the freezer.

Yum! This recipe was an instant hit with my friends! Only changes we made were to spice it up a bit with some red pepper flakes and chili powder.

Drop the sodium from store bought taco seasoning. Make your own with Cumin, ceyenne, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.
