This Easy Turkey Taco Casserole Recipe Saves Our Weeknight Dinners

I don’t know about you all, but when my kids went back to school, there was suddenly ZERO time left to do anything! We wake up early, get ready, I drop the kids off at school, I work all day, I pick the kids up, and before you know it, it’s almost bed time. Yikes! There’s literally time for homework, quick meal, and a bath – that’s it. It’s tough to get a nutritious dinner on the table during the week when you’ve been gone all day, but that is soon going to change.

With a packed schedule, it can be challenging to get a good quality meal on the table for my family – especially when you’re pressed for time! When we get home late, I simply do not have the time to prepare an elaborate meal. Thank goodness for quick and easy casseroles, this delicious and health-conscious turkey taco casserole bake made with Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey has become a new family favorite! If your family loves tacos, you’ve got to try this recipe at home.

Let’s get started with this easy layered taco bake recipe! It should take you about 30 minutes from start to finish, and it will be can as soon as you take it out of the oven.

Pre-heat your over to 375 degrees. In a large skillet, warm your oil over medium heat and saute garlic and onion for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey and cook until browned. Add a splash of water to the meat and mix in the two taco seasoning packets thoroughly.

Making turkey taco casserole with tortilla chips

In a casserole dish, evenly layer your corn tortilla chips on the bottom, then add the ground turkey. Pour the jar of salsa over the meat, spreading it out as even as possible. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and bake uncovered for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

While you wait for your casserole to cook, prep the remaining topping ingredients and set aside. Remove the turkey taco casserole from the oven and top with lettuce, tomatoes, and green onion. At this point, you can let the casserole cool for a few minutes, or go ahead and dive right in! Serve with all of your favorite taco condiments.
