This is a gluten free take on the traditional southwest lasagna! Made with lean ground turkey (easy to make meatless too!) and cheese (optional) on top, this is a FAST and wallet friendly dish that is excellent for the family or friends!


  • 1 can kidney beans (or make your own)
  • 1 can black beans (or make your own)
  • 1 1/2 cup corn (try to use organic sweet corn)
  • 1 package of lean ground turkey (you can omit for vegetarian version)
  • 1 bell pepper, finely chopped (add little bit of spicy peppers if desired)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cups of salsa or enchilada sauce (usually gluten free, found in ethnic aisle of local grocery store)
  • 1 package of corn tortillas
  • 1 bag shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese
  • taco seasoning if desired
  • Optional garnish: sliced avocados

1. Add the ground turkey, peppers and onions in a saucepan and cook until meat is at appropriate consumable temperature. Add taco seasoning if desired.
2. In a large oven safe dish, layer with all the ingredients:

  • Layer the bottom of the baking dish with 1 cup of salsa or enchilada sauce.
  • Cover with corn tortillas.
  • Layer with beans and corn.
  • Layer with ground turkey mixture.
  • Top with a light layer of shredded cheese.
  • Repeat this layering process one more time and add the other cup of salsa or enchilada sauce on top.
