You’ll love this easy Cheesy Nacho Casserole! It’s loaded with ground turkey, beans, tortilla chips, and plenty of cheese for a family friendly dinner recipe!
Now look. I don’t mean to criticize the recipe author. I believe everyone should make their food the way they like it, and I love for people to share their recipes with the world! I just don’t really like Miracle Whip anyway, and combining it with the word nachos is not what I expected.
So there I was, left with a hunger for a nacho casserole (minus mayonnaise), so I decided to create my own! My version uses ground turkey, but you can use beef or chicken or whatever you like. Since I was leaving out the salad dressing, it still needed something to hold it together. I used a mixture of cream cheese and sour cream to give a rich, creamy base. I realized as I made this dish that it’s an awful lot like my Creamy Taco Dip recipe, except it’s dinner. I love any excuse to eat dip for dinner! If you do too, I also suggest you take a gander at this Hearty Hot Spinach Dip.
I have to break it to you that you’ll be happiest if you gobble up this entire casserole when it’s hot and fresh. I love recipes that make good leftovers, but this isn’t really one of them. Don’t get me wrong. You can for sure eat the leftovers. In fact, I’m having it for lunch right now! It’s just not as good as when the chips are freshly baked, and the cheese is hot and melty. Once it cools (and is reheated), there’s a lot lost in the texture department. It still tastes good though :) I hope you enjoy the recipe!
