Southwest Ground Turkey Casserole


It was another night of diggin through the freezer looking for something to make for supper. I found some ground turkey. Hmm..what to do with that?? Well, I really needed to make a run to the store but was running out of time. I found a beef casserole recipe online and decided to substitute the turkey for the beef. It would make dinner a little more healthy.


I decided on a Southwest Casserole. This recipe is very simple and you can use either beef or turkey. I was a little skeptical about this recipe, but the finished product was nothing short of amazing. This meal quickly became a family favorite and it’s so easy. You can’t mess this up at all!
