Seasonal Mexican Casserole

Seasonal Mexican Casserole

1 lb ground turkey
small onion
1-2 cups black beans, soaked and cooked
1 cup corn
seasonal veggies of your choice - I used zucchini and squash
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
3/4 tsp cumin

Saute turkey and onion for about 5 minutes. When the meat is almost done, add the zucchini. Add everything else and cook until everything has come together and looks fabulous.

Layer a buttered 9x13 with tortillas (whatever you can handle....sprouted wheat, corn, brown rice). Cover the tortillas with the entire meat/veggie mixture. Add another layer of tortillas. Top with cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 325 until everything is warmed through. Garnish with avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, etc.


  1. This looks delicious! In fact, all your food looks so yummy. I would love to have you guest post on Healthy Mom's Kitchen some time. It looks like you and I share some of the same philosophies on food and family.

  2. What a great blog! So glad I found this, and now I'm off to peruse the rest of your site :)
