Belly Shrinkin Mexican Casserole

I am pretty excited to share this recipe with you. Like I have said multiple times I love any kind of Mexican dish but I am pretty sure the scale doesn't. So I wanted to come up with something that would satisfy my Mexican taste buds. So here I go!

What you will need
1 pound of ground turkey
 quinoa (judge on how much you want, it is going to be the bottom layer of the casserole)
enchilada sauce
whole no salted, low sodium corn
diced tomatoes
taco seasoning
red and green pepper (I used half of each)
skim mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven 350'
Start by browning your ground turkey.

Then begin your quinoa. Make sure the don't over cook it. You cook it just like you would rice


Chop your veggies :)

Once the ground turkey is ready add your taco seasoning and veggies,

and let simmer

Once your quinioa is ready pour into the bottom of the baking dish.

Followed by your layers.
1. ground turkey and veggies
2. corn
3. diced tomatoes

4. skim mozzarella cheese (my favorite part)

Then repeat.

Top it off with some yummy jalapenos.

Let cook until the edges are browned and the cheese is melted  (about 15 minutes, depending on oven)

Then get ready for your Mexican Fiesta. It is delicious and great for leftovers.
