Ground Turkey Taco Pizza

I had a lot of leftover Frijoles de Olla from class that needed to be used up, but I didn’t want to make soup with it because it’s a balmy 70°F here. Taco Pizza to the rescue! I refried some of the beans and added them as the “sauce”. It was a hit and IContinue reading “Ground Turkey Taco Pizza”

Ancho Chicken Enchilada Casserole

I found some long lost tortillas in the freezer that were too stiff to make enchiladas with. So, I made chicken enchilada casserole instead!
