Turkey & Dorito Chilli Bake

Can you believe that we still have Christmas leftovers in the house. Apart from chocolate, which the kids are attacking with gusto, we still have lots of cheese, crackers and crisps so I'm trying to use as much as I can in meals to remove the temptation, especially now I am officially in training for my leg of the Team Honk Relay.

My eagle eyed bargain spotter of a Mum picked up a pack of turkey mince in the reduced aisles when she was on her way to us for Christmas so I dug it out of the freezer and used that in this recipe, making it reasonably healthy - if you overlook the large bag of Doritos I scattered on top! I also used a mixture of leftover cheddars and red Leicester cheeses for the topping.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pan
  • Fry the onion & garlic gently until softened
  • Add the peppers & fry for an additional 2 minutes before adding the turkey mince & spices
  • Fry for approx 10 minutes or until the turkey is cooked through
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, baked beans & tomato puree
  • Stir well, place a lid on and simmer for 10-15 minutes
  • Spoon into a large lasagne dish and top with Doritos and grated cheese
  • Bake in a 180C oven for 10-15 minutes until cheese is bubbling 

Unfortunately it was another rubbish photo due to me not being organised and cooking earlier in the day!
