  • 15 corn tortillas cut in half
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper seeded, cored and diced
  • 1 large poblano chile seeded and diced
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 2 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons chile powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
  • garnish cilantro and sour cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Light spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Arrange tortillas on two baking sheets in a single layer and bake until slightly crispy, about 15 minutes. Set aside and cool until ready to use.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook ground turkey until meat is crumbled and bite size pieces. Season meat with 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper. Drain meat and set aside.
  • Wipe the skillet clean and return to medium heat. Add the butter and olive oil. Once the butter is melted and the onion, bell pepper, poblano pepper, corn and garlic. Saute until the vegetables are softened, 3-5 minutes.
  • Stir in the flour, chile powder, cumin and coriander. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Gradually whisk in the chicken broth, whisking constantly. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir mixture occasionally so the vegetables don't stick to the bottom. Take off heat and add the beans, lime juice and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
  • Line the bottom of the greased baking dish with 1/3 of the tortillas. Layer with 1/3 of the meat mixture, then 1/3 of the veggie/sauce mixture and then sprinkle with 1/3 of the shredded cheese. Repeat process two more times, ending with shredded cheeses.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and hot. Remove from oven and let sit 10 minutes before serving.
  • Garnish and serve!
