Torri's Mexican Tortilla Bake

  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium onions
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 red pepper deseeded and diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp salsa (your choice)
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • salt and black pepper

To Assemble:
4 large tortilla wraps
1 cup of mozzarella cheese, grated
1 cup of mild cheddar cheese, grated

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F
  2. Pour the oil into a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the onions and fry for 3 minutes. Turn up the heat, add the ground turkey and fry until brown, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon and stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the red pepper, garlic and spices and fry for 5 minutes, or until all the moisture has evaporated and the mixture is quite dry. Stir in the salsa,  and salt and black pepper to taste. Cover with a lid, bring to the boil. Cook until all liquid is dissolved
  4. Spread a third of the cooked turkey mixture over the bottom of the ovenproof dish and lay one tortilla wrap on top. Sprinkle with mozzarella and cheddar cheese.   Repeat until no more tortillas and meat remain. 
  5. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes until golden-brown and bubbling. Set aside for 5 minutes before serving and garnish with the remaining cilantro.
