Mexican Casserole


1 Lb Ground Turkey

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Red Bell Pepper chopped

1 Red Onion chopped

2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt

1 Teaspoon Pepper

1 Teaspoon Trader Joe's Chili Lime Seasoning

1 Tablespoon Cumin

1-2 Teaspoons Dried Oregano

1 Cup Salsa spicy or mild depending on preference

1 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese shredded

Fresh Cilantro to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  2. Heat olive oil (2 tablespoons) over medium heat in a large pan (I like to use a 9" oven-safe skillet so I use only one pan for the entire recipe!). Once shimmering, add red bell pepper (1 chopped), red onion (1 chopped), salt (2 teaspoons), and pepper (1 teaspoon). Sauté until softened.

  3. Add the chili lime, cumin, and dried oregano, and toast until fragrant - about 2 minutes.

  4. Remove pan from heat, and add salsa and 1 Lb ground turkey. Stir to combine.

  5. If you aren't using an oven-safe pan, transfer ingredients to an 8x8 casserole dish.

  6. Evenly spread the shredded cheese on top.

  7. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until casserole is warmed all the way through and the cheese has lightly browned. Top with cilantro and enjoy!

Note: This is great to be paired with some veggies on the side.
