1/2 lb. ground turkey
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 envelope taco seasoning, low-sodium if available
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 4-oz. can green chiles, chopped drained
16 corn tortillas, cut into wedges
2 cups reduced fat Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 16-oz. can non-fat refried beans
1 7-oz. jar roasted red bell peppers, drained
non-fat sour cream

In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat and cook onions until translucent. Add garlic and cook another minute. Then add turkey, and cook until browned, breaking into small pieces, as you go. Add the taco seasoning package according to package directions mixing well and allowing to simmer for a couple of minutes until slightly thickened. Stir in the chiles and set aside. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 10" pie plate. Place one fourth of the tortilla pieces on the bottom of the pie plate (till covered). Spread with half of the turkey mixture; sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Place another one fourth of the tortillas on cheese; spread with beans. Place yet another one fourth of the tortillas on beans; top with roasted peppers. And finally, place the remaining tortillas on the roasted peppers and spread with remaining turkey mixture. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese. Cover and bake 30 to 40 minutes or until cheese is melted and center is hot. Let sit 10 minutes before cutting into your masterpiece. Can be served with salsa and sour cream, if desired.


SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Serve with brown rice, steamed broccoli and a bowl of baby carrots for the table. VEGETARIANS: Substitute TVP crumbles for the turkey.
