{turkey taco stack}

Today is one of my FAVORITE days of the year- OPENING DAY! Hallelujah, I look forward to this day sooo much every year. Baseball on TV, windows open to the beautiful 75 degree sunshine and catching up on the blog- happy day! šŸ™‚

Like most of us, I am all about recipes that are tasty and give you a great bang for your buck. This turkey taco stack is the perfect meal if you’re looking for a flavorful dinner. It is also super quick and easy! Ground beef can definitely be substituted in if you’re not a fan of turkey, the best part of this recipe is that it is super customizable. I like to serve this taco stack with chips and salsa or a bit of cilantro lime rice!

Here’s what you’ll need:Ā 

1 lb. ground turkey
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 medium sized white onion, diced
16 oz. canned refried beans
8 oz. sour cream
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup pepper jack cheese
1 large tomato, diced
2 tbs.Ā cilantro, chopped
4 medium sized tortillas

StepsĀ to make:Ā 

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheet with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray.
  2. Brown turkey and onion over medium-high heat until cooked through, add taco seasoning and stir.
  3. Place first tortilla down and spread a third of the beans over tortilla, then half of the sour cream.
  4. Sprinkle a thirdĀ of the turkey onto tortilla, top with half of theĀ tomato.
  5. Add a tortilla to the stack, spread another third of theĀ beans, remainder of sour cream and cheddar cheese.
  6. Sprinkle remainder of tomato, cilantro and a third of the turkey onto tortilla.
  7. Add a tortilla and spread remainder of beans, and sprinkle the rest of the turkey and the pepperjack cheese.
  8. Top with final tortilla and bake for about 45 minutes at 375 degrees, or until warmed through and tortillas become crispy.
  9. Let stand for 5 minutes, cut into quarters and enjoy!
