Prep and Cook Time 30 minutes


Makes 4 servings


9 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1/2 pound lean ground turkey
1/2 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup mild or medium taco sauce
1 can (4 ounces) chopped mild green chilies, drained
1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
Sour cream (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place tortillas on large baking sheet, overlapping as little as possible; bake 4 minutes. Turn tortillas; continue baking 2 minutes or until crisp. Cool completely on wire rack.
  2. Heat medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add turkey and onion. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until turkey is browned and onion is tender. Add taco sauce, chilies and corn. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Break 3 tortillas and arrange over bottom of 1-1/2-quart casserole. Spoon half of turkey mixture over tortillas; sprinkle with half of cheese. Repeat layers. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is heated through. Break remaining 3 tortillas into pieces and sprinkle over casserole. Garnish with sour cream.
