Turkey & Black Bean Taco Lasagna – {The Recipe Redux}

Turkey & Black Bean Taco Lasagna – {The Recipe Redux}

Whenever I survey our online community, tacos come up as one of the top family favorites. They are versatile, and you can set out a build-your-own taco bar to give the kids more control of what goes into their taco shells. I took some creative license with tacos by turning them into a lasagna. Instead of noodles, I used flour tortillas, and for the filling, I cooked up a mix of lean ground turkey, bell pepper, black beans, corn kernels, salsa, cottage cheese (vs. ricotta), spices, and cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or organic canola oil
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1½ teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1½ cups shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
