This is Hub's favorite snack or dinner while watching college basketball. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and added corn kennels and red peppers to the recipe.
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup water
1 packages taco seasoning mix
1 small can chopped green chilies
1 can 16 oz fat-free refried beans
1 1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped red peppers
1/2 cup corn kennels
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 can sliced ripe olives, drained
Sour Cream and
Heat oven to 350F
Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. In a nonstick skillet, cook ground meat over medium heat. Drain away the fat and stir in corn, red peppers, water and taco seasoning mix. Heat to boiling, cook 2-4 mins. Stir in chilies.
Spread refried beans in baking dish, top with ground meat mixture. Cover tightly with foil. Bake 30-40 mins until bubbly around edges.
Uncover, sprinkle with cheese, tomato, onions, and olives. Arrange about 20 tortilla chips around the edges. Bake uncovered for 10 mins. Serve with sour cream and guacamole on the side.
