Ingredients 

  • 1 Pound ground turkey
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • ½ Cup jalapenos, canned, sliced
  • 1 packet taco seasoning, 1.25 Ounces
  • 1 Cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon ranch seasoning
  • 2 Bags Doritos, cool ranch, 9.25 Ounce bags
  • 1 Bag frozen corn, cool ranch , 10.8 Ounces, sometimes called fiesta corn
  • 1 Can tomato and green chilies, 10 Ounces, drained, such as Rotel
  • 3 Cups cheese, taco cheese, shredded
  • cilantro, optional garnish

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Add greek yogurt and ranch seasoning to the turkey and stir until well combined. Remove from heat.
  • Add ¾ of the Doritos to a ziplock and break into quarter sized pieces. Add remaining ¼ of the Doritos to a separate ziplock to be used in step 8. **Pieces should be about the size of a quarter, careful not to break down into too fine of crumbs.**
  • Lightly spray a 9x13 casserole dish with olive oil or canola oil. Line the bottom of the pan with ½ of the broken dorito chips. Top with ½ of the ground turkey.
  • Next, add ½ of the corn, ½ of the tomatoes with green chilies, and ½ of the cheese.
  • Repeat adding remaining halves of doritos, ground turkey, corn, and tomatoes.
  • Crush the second ziplock bag of doritos into fine crumbs. Sprinkle over the top of the casserole then add remaining cheese.
  • Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Top with red onion and jalapenos. Garnish with cilantro and serve with shredded lettuce and cabbage.
