Tasty Tuesday #11

By 1:00 AM

Hey guys! I'm back again with another Tasty Tuesday!
 
I do alter my recipes to fit my own tastes, so please also feel free to refer back to the original recipe at the bottom of the post to see what I may have eliminated.

 Most of my recipes are Weight Watcher friendly, but don't let that scare you away. They are actually really good. I've also found some great websites like Skinny Kitchen and Skinny Taste that I use a lot too. Most of my recipes have some kick to them, so if you are not a big spicy person, adjust the spices to better fit your tastes. OH. And all of the meals I cook are really easy to prepare. I'm not big on difficult meals.

 Today I am featuring:
 
Cheeseburger Casserole


 
Ingredients:
 
-cooking spray
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1 small onion, chopped
-1/8 tsp cumin
-1/8 tsp black pepper
-1/4 cup evaporated milk
-2 large Yukon, gold potatoes
-1 lb. ground turkey
-1/4 tsp salt
-2 oz. Kraft cheese cubed
-1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
-1 small green pepper, chopped
-8 tortilla chips, crushed
 
Directions:
 
1. Boil potatoes.
2. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat 9 inch casserole dish with cooking spray.
3. Peel and thinly slice potatoes. Layer at bottom of casserole dish. Bake until slightly crisp (10 minutes or so). Remove and set aside.
4. While potatoes bake, coat skillet with spray and warm over medium-hi heat; add garlic, onion, green pepper. Cook stirring frequently until tender (7-10 minutes). Remove to plate and cover.
5. Add turkey to skillet; cook until browned, breaking up with spoon. (8-10 minutes).
6. Add cooked veggies, cumin, salt, and pepper to turkey and stir. Spread mix over potatoes in dish.
7. In small microwave bowl, combine cheese, evaporated milk, and red pepper flakes. Cover and microwave until cheese melts. Spoon over turkey and sprinkle with tortilla chips (optional- I don't actually do that with mine.)
8. Bake 35 minutes and remove. Slice into 6 pieces. (I like to drizzle ketchup on the top too.)
 
Notes:
 
*This is mine and my Dad's favorite WW recipe. He always begs me to make it for him.
 
*I don't typically bother with the tortilla chips because I don't always have them on hand.
 
*The cheese mixture is just enough to drizzle over turkey. You can of course use more cheese to make more. It just adds a bit of flavor.
 
*This is a more time consuming recipe mainly because of waiting for the silly potatoes to boil on the stove. Once that's done, it's all pretty fast and easy.
 
Serving Size: 1 slice
