Recipe Swap Wednesday-Tex Mex Tortilla Casserole

I first tried this recipe last winter, shortly after Thanksgiving, because it uses turkey. It's a recipe that I got from Notes From The Trenches. Honestly, of all the recipes of hers that I have tried, they have all been fabulous. I usually half the recipe from the beginning because she has 7 children, including many boys, and I don't so obviously halving the recipe is the first place to start. And then, since I just have to mess with every recipe I try, I change or add or whatever and that's the recipe I'll share today. You can find the original recipe here.

Tex-Mex Tortilla Casserole
2 cups (cooked) cubed turkey, shredded chicken, or ground beef (I usually use chicken)
1 16-oz. jar of salsa
1 can of corn, drained
1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed
1/4 cup sour cream
1.5-2 cups crushed tortilla chips
Cheddar Cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine turkey(or chicken or beef), salsa, corn, black beans and sour cream and pour into casserole dish. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle top with crushed tortilla chips and cheese. Bake for 5-10 more minutes. Serve over rice. And with avocado because that goes with everything. Makes 4-6 servings.

Sounds pretty good, but you share this recipe thinking that I actually cook!! ;-)

I'll just file it away for another point in the space time continuum - when my inner Julia Child surfaces.
