  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Step 2

    Cook Quinoa according to package directions.

  • Step 3

    While Quinoa is cooking, add 1 TB olive oil to a large, deep skillet over medium heat and add turkey. Break up the meat into small pieces as it browns. After about 5 minutes, add in onion and garlic and continue to cook until turkey is cooked through and the onion and garlic are soft.

  • Step 4

    Add in green chillies, corn and cumin and cook for another 3-5 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Add ½ cup salsa to turkey mixture. Stir to combine.

  • Step 6

    Once Quinoa is cooked, removed turkey mixture from heat and add in all of the quinoa. Stir until well to combine.

  • Step 7

    In the bottom of a casserole dish (mine is about 10x6) put a few TB of salsa and spread evenly to coat bottom. Top with half of the quinoa/turkey mixture. Top that with about ½ cup salsa, spread over the entire mixture. Top with ⅔ cup cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients - 2nd half of quinoa/turkey mixture, ½ cup salsa and 1 ⅓ cup cheese.

  • Step 8

    Bake for about 10 minutes and then broil for 2 minutes or until cheese starts to brown.
