Time to start fresh!

It's time to start posting to my blog again! Starting everyone off with a recipe I made last week that BD and I used to make for dinner all the time, back before the kids started eating the same food as us! The verdict? BD and I loved it. PM liked it. DQ said it was too spicy. As a suggestion, serve with Fat Free Sour Cream!

Tortilla Lasagna


1TBLSP Vegetable Oil
1 LB Ground Turkey
1 Cup Chopped Onion
1 ½ Cup Chopped Green and/or Red Peppers
½ cup (4 oz) Diced/Chopped Green Chiles

10 Flour Tortillas
2 cups Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese

  2.  Heat vegetable oil in large skillet over medium heat.  Add ground turkey and cook , stirring  occasionally for 5-6 minutes, or until no longer pink.
