2 lb lean ground turkey

2 16-oz can refried beans

2 4-oz cans diced green chilies

1 tin diced tomatoes, drained of extra “juice”

2 tbsp chili powder

4 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

3 brown rice tortillas (trader joes) cut into 1″ strips

3 cups Mexican blend cheese {or cheddar cheese}

I browned the turkey and added in the spices, toms, chilies.
I put 1/3 of the meat mixture into a 9×13 Pyrex dish covered with refried beans, cheese and tortilla strips. Repeat. Repeat. Top with cheese.

Bake at 375 for 40 mins.
Remove from oven and let sit for 20 mins.

I divided into 12 portions with each around 12 carbs.
