Turkey Nachos


2 c. cooked turkey, chopped

2 T. olive oil

1 t. ground cumin

1 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. chili powder

10 oz tortilla chipsĀ 

1 16-oz can refried beans

2 c. shredded cheddar or Monterey jack cheese

1-2 c. salsa

Place turkey in a bowl and drizzle olive oil over it. Sprinkle with cumin, garlic and chili powder, then stir with wooden spoon, working the ingredients together and chopping the turkey into even finer shreds with your spoon as you work.

Spread half the chips into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Scoop the entire amount of refried beans over the chips, spreading as well as you can to make an even layer. Top with the turkey and 1 cup of cheese.

Make another layer with remaining chips, then top evenly with the salsa (one to two cups, depending on your preference). Sprinkle the other cup of cheese over the top and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese melts and begins to bubble.

Serve hot-- alone or with sides of sour cream, cilantro, guacamole. These nachos are awesome!
