AIMEE FORTNEY'S MEXICAN CASSEROLE (OR MEXICAN LASAGNA)
In a medium to large skillet, heat the olive oil, then add and cook ground turkey and onion. Next, add the Mexican spice blend, black beans and blender salsa. Stir until combined. You can prepare this in a 9x13 casserole dish or a loaf pan and then freeze.
To assemble, place about 1/3 cup of the turkey mixture on the bottom of a lightly greased pan, then add the tortillas. Next, add more of the turkey mixture, top with cheese, then keep repeating layers, ending with cheese.
Bake at 350 for about 15 to 20 minutes to melt the cheese and heat everything through.
