Directions

Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Set aside a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish.

Brown the ground turkey with the garlic and onions in a large skillet over medium-high heat, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain the fat and stir in the taco season, pepper and salt to combine. Add in can of enchilada sauce, corn, and black beans (drained). Simmer for 5 min.

Building the casserole: Break up the chips by crushing the bag slightly with your hands. Make sure not to over crush the chips. Mix together the cheeses in a medium bowl.  Add a layer of chips to the bottom of the dish. Top each with half the turkey mixture and 1/3 cup of the cheese. Repeat, adding another layer of chips, turkey mix and cheese.

Cover the glass baking dish with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to bake until bubbly, another 5 minutes.

Toppings: Top the cooked casserole with the shredded butter lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sour cream, sliced black olives and green onions before serving.

All toppings are optional! Make it your own! You can even swap out the chips to possible a different flavor Dorito or even Fritos!
