Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Wow! These nachos are packed with so much flavor. Not only is this a great way to use leftover turkey, it's delicious. The dressing mix brings this dish to a whole new level of yumminess! During the holidays when everyone is tired of the typical things you make with leftover turkey, give this a try for something new and different.

Ingredients

3 Tbsp
lime juice
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 tsp
ground cumin
1 tsp
garlic powder
2 c
cooked turkey, coarsely chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1 pkg
10 ounce large tortilla chips, I used the blue corn organic chips
1 can(s)
16 fluid ounces refried beans
2 c
shredded monterey jack cheese
2 c
salsa
sour cream
cilantro, fresh

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 425°F. Whisk together lime juice, olive oil, cumin and garlic powder.
2
Add turkey to large/medium bowl. Toss mixture with turkey in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
3
Make a layer of tortilla chips to cover the bottom of a large 12 to 14-inch round or oval baking dish. (I used a 9 x 13 pyrex baking dish) Evenly spoon refried beans over chips.
4
Top with turkey.
5
Sprinkle with 1 cup shredded cheese. Make another layer of tortilla chips.
6
Spoon half the salsa evenly over chips. Top with remaining cup of cheese.
7
Bake nachos 15-20 minutes or until heated through and cheese melts and begins to bubble.
8
Serve hot with remaining salsa, sour cream and cilantro, if desired.
