How to Make Leftover Turkey Nachos

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.
