Tex Mex Casserole (21 Day Fix approved)

Being a Texan and living far away from the border means that I don’t get all the Tex Mex food that I love.  Don’t get me wrong- there are many good places that can be found, but the searching process is much more intricate.  Also being half-Mexican, I am lucky in that I gained some wonderfully authentic Mexican recipes from my late abuela.  However, sometimes I’m in the mood for some quick and Tex Mex like tacos, enchiladas, or fajitas.  This casserole is a little bit of everything and is healthy to boot!  Tex Mex Casserole     (6 servings)

Prep: 10 minutes  Cook: 25 minutes


1/2 lb ground turkey

6 corn tortillas, 6″ diameter

1 cup mushrooms (chopped)

1 red bell pepper (chopped)

1/2  zucchini  (chopped)

3/4 cup pico de gallo

1 cup Greek yogurt

1/2 cup chicken or veggie broth

1 tsp taco seasoning

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

1 Tbs cilantro

1 tsp olive or coconut oil

guacamole (optional)

To prepare:

  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • In a frying pan add 1 tsp oil and cook the ground turkey until browned through.  Season with taco seasoning and set aside.
  • In a greased 9×13″ baking dish, place corn tortillas, overlapping slightly, until covering the bottom of the baking dish.  Add ground beef, vegetables and pico de gallo, sprinkling evenly over tortillas.
  • In a small bowl mix Greek yogurt, veggie broth, garlic powder, paprika and cilantro.  Pour evenly over casserole.
  • Bake uncovered for 25 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
  • Top with guacamole and enjoy!
